Food for Thought-On the Death of My Coptic Brothers

images

My Monophysite soul,
A Methodist reality,
Bound to a Coptic past,
Before schisms and councils,
When faith was chanted,
In liturgical rhythms,
Through the desert night,
Listening to Psalms,
Telling the story,
Of people here,
Of believers there,
Who rely
On your forgiveness,
When we die,
For those who kill,
And we who survive.

-Richard Bryant
