Speaking to the Soul: Between one world and the next

Speaking to the Soul: Between one world and the next

Between one world and the next

holding on, praying, hoping

Fighting for this world and the next

unrest, willful, our own way

Then pleas of forgiveness

will God accept this broken

Life, lived and yet the cross

shows what is broken is

Sacred, a light to all who dare

to see the brilliance of the

Sky illumined with our prayers

between us held in offering



The Rev. Annette Joseph is rector at Holy Cross, Poplar Bluff Missouri. She is married to Richard and they have five children. Reflecting on life has always been a tool for deepening.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
