Mrs. Jackson and the Congregation
by Mark S. Orr
Sunlight lit Mrs Jackson's face as she began to tell her story.
Amidst rows of pews, and brilliant hues of streaming stained glass glory.
The congregation passed the plate as Huldah testified.
I wondered where she found her faith since Mr. Jackson died.
She'd turned to the Bible and found her comfort there.
Her son turned to the bottle and pretended not to care.
And as she spoke of faith and hope to the restless congregation.
A line formed at the altar barring provacation.
Even the irascible Mr.Maddy knelt down on bended knee.
He thanked the lord for his Becca and loving family.
God in his amazing glory was in our church that day.
He used a future angel to to show us all the way.
