Start a Rumor

What treasure we withhold
For fear of being seen
What life denied our neighbor
Only leftovers to glean

Set a feast
Kill the calf
Pour the wine
Tap a draft
Raise the dead
Heal the lame
Love like Jesus
Just the same

Let them gossip in their homes
Of a people oddly free
Start a rumor of new life
And a love that cannot be

Live in hope
Offer grace
Smile often
Slow your pace
Be a light
Share the peace
Scatter salt
Love increase

Start a Rumor
