A Sensible Approach to Christian Truth

POETRY BY SHIRLEY ANNE LEONARD

Walls of Jericho

Published in The FORESEE, March-April 2007, and in Remembering Eden

So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. — Joshua 6:20

The walls of Jericho were strong indeed,
and stood like iron bastions in the land.
Our walls are different — our belief and creed
that separate. How can we understand
the law of Christ, His royal great command
to love our God and neighbor, which imparts
a unity, extends a helping hand
to all who confess Jesus in their hearts?
The walls of Jericho fell not by man.
It took His power, with angels’ strength and skill,
to level them, and manifest His plan.
Then how shall our walls fall, to work His will
that all the earth be covered with His Word,
His kingdom touched and seen — and not just heard?
