Dear Pastor Bob,
Remember me? My name is Billy Glass…
I graduated last July from Confirmation class.
I've read my Bible front to back and pray 'most every night,
But I'm afraid to come to church -
And this is why I write.
Don't get me wrong - I love the LORD and don't mean to be bad -
I'd love to fill a Sunday pew between my mum and dad,
But scripture says, as you well know, when Christians are devout,
We are the Body of our LORD -
This kinda creeps me out.
Oh, I don't mind if purest Hearts share visions they have seen,
But what disturbing sights are seen by Colons or a Spleen?
Can I ignore confessing Lips or secrets they might tell?
If someone lacks the Ears to hear
Am I s'posed to yell?
How will I run on bended Knee or see with darkly sight…
Or keep my left Hand in the dark while scratching with my right?
I might get sick if from my Mouth some Heart's excesses spill,
And plucking eyeballs that offend
Is sure to make me ill!
I know I must defeat my fears (believe me, I have tried)
And be a vital organ, not a thorn in Jesus' side.
So if you can suggest a cure, my Ears are open - really!
I hope to see you soon in church.
Yours most sincerely,
