Ordination

Rites, ancient and modern
intermingled today
ordinations performed
with hands laid on heads.
The pomp and majesty
through the music and hymns
as voices lifted heavenward
in the communal activity of worship.
We are not ordained alone,
we are not sent away to be cut off,
we are ordained as part of a greater whole,
called to serve, in a broken world.
