Superiority & Prejudice

EER_0579 (2)


Superiority is the greatest enabler of prejudice!
Downfall of all of us, it seems // from the Garden to now
Outthinking God // we believe our own truth
About life // about others // about faith
Encapsulating God in our own image
Superiority seems to bring out the worst in people
Evolves equally in both rich and poor
Entitlement blinds the moral compass
Making North South and East West
Seduces the good // enrages the oppressed
Superiority evolves from the Id and builds the Ego
Falsely filling our minds with our own fake news
Selfish desires rise above right and wrong
Elevating race and color above common sense
Claiming ideology and theology to be the basis for greater truth
Superiority is the greatest enabler of prejudice

My Faith

EER_0772.JPG

Faith is the floodplain of Grace
Where I plant my roots to grow
Giving me the strength I need
To find meaning and purpose in life
Faith is the floodplain of Grace
Where conscience and moral values
Are cultivated throughout my lifetime;
Bringing meaning and purpose to life
Faith brings meaning and purpose to life
Sharing in a community of likeminded
Believers who support and encourage
One another to become all we can be
Faith is my connection to God
Community is the cement holding us,
The lively stones // the believers in Christ,
Together in love and fellowship
Faith is the floodplain of Grace where I am rooted
The source of who I am
