“The young men came and wrapped up his body, then carried him out and buried him.” – Acts 5:6

God of all ages, 
God of the child who
Jesus takes into his arms
declaring,
"Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me,"
why, then, do Jesus' followers
watch, teach and ask that child
to become a young human that
wraps up dead bodies,
carries dead bodies,
and buries dead bodies,
bodies created by the church?
I am done watching bodies
wrapped up, carried out and buried in the ground,
out of sight,
out of mind.
Too many young children
have grown up to be dead bodies.
Too many young children
have grown up to kill alive bodies.
God, the Bodies of Christs
need more than just "Enough!"
to be carried into Life!
Amen.
