The church is. . .

The church is a sink.

for the broken, for the broken-hearted

for people who have no other place, and no one else to talk to or be spoken to

for those that don’t get to hold hands or hug or kiss anyone at other places

for the sick, the terminal, the mentally-terminal to discover healing they didn’t know existed

for the homeless that just want some friends or some friendly chat, but they get a blessing instead

for the young who have lost their humanity and never learned the “common sense” of their ancestors

for the abused children and the abused children who became adults who still ask “why?”

because they all know there is a response for them there in a circle of friends who reach out to them

in the sink, where they go to attempt cleanliness. ~Brandon Shaw
