The idea is to get you thinking about why you believe what you believe, and generate a bit of discussion.

In Time Of Need

If God will go to the cross for you, will He not also hold your hand now?
If God will go to Calvary for you, will He not also be here for you, when you need Him most?
If God will suffer all the punishments that twisted minds can devise,
  And go far beyond what the human soul can bear,
      And abandon for a moment, His true Beloved,
         For you.
Will he not also cling to you and surround you with His cloak of grace?
So, if God can do all this, and, burst victorious from death’s tomb, can He not also give you hope?

Maverick Love

The Love of God’s a wild thing,
A maverick, anarchic rebel,
Set loose amongst our tidy lives
To break the rule of hate and fear, and fear of hate
And all the hate our prejudice builds.

The Love of God’s a reckless thing,
An unruly vandal run amok,
Caring not for personal boundaries,
Spraying walls with grace’s graffiti,
And breaking windows to let in God’s light.

The Love of God’s a crazy thing,
Madly in love and loving madly,
Any and all who live beneath the sun.
And through the Son, and one unbridled act of Passion,
Offers love all consuming that we may be
        All consumed within the Love of God.
