Nothing (and Everything) That Separates Us

Nothing
not anything
can separate us from
You . . . but what about everything
that separates us from
You within others?

Nothing
not anything
can separate us
from Your love enfleshed
within every single one
within all people

Nothing
not anything
can separate us
You have made us to be
diverse in Your love
not divided

Nothing
not anything
ethnicity and gender
age and talent and family
blessed by differences
called by one Love

Nothing
not even angels
not systems not rulers
not war not hardship not hunger
we are different not separate
one Love, one Breath

Nothing
yet the pervasive lies
of separation and “better than”
are killing us: Renisha McBride, Eric Garner,
children at the border, children in Gaza
nothing, and yet . . . everything

Nothing
not anything
can separate us
from Your love in all people;
we confess everything
that does.
