Boxes (poem)

boxes.jpgSome people love boxes.
Boxes have straight edges and sharp corners.
Boxes are either open or closed.
Best of all, you can stick labels on boxes.

Some people think a church is a box.

Some people hate boxes.
Boxes have straight edges and sharp corners.
Boxes are either open or closed.
Worst of all, you can stick labels on boxes.

Some people think a church is a box.

If you put chocolates in a box, do you get a box full of chocolates or a chocolate box?
If you put Christians in a church, do you get a church full of Christians or a Christian church?

Some people think a church is a box.

Some people love boxes; especially boxes with labels.
Some people hate boxes; especially boxes with labels.
Some say that the people that love boxes and the people that hate boxes are simply each in their own box.
They say the only difference is the label.

    The church is a family. and the bride of Christ. The buildings they meet in are sometimes boxes. Some meet in homes or on river banks or in fields,bars,stores they vary. The body of Christ,bride of Christ, family of God is very big and is worldwide. Do more looking and you’ll see how big,wide and varied it is.

    Hi Jon, I really like that box poem, did you write it yourself?? It’s very good. Do you mind if I put it up on another blog or website?
