I’m giving up God for Lent;
this God of border walls, hate and violence,
who instead of being heaven-sent,
has believers heading hell bent
towards a religion of intolerance.
Instead I’m going where the compassionate Jesus went;
He of current irrelevance,
Messiah of the meek, Suffering Servant,
Alien to this world, rejected Immigrant,
who calls me to a life of grace and providence.
