to change the world

To change the world
is to honor the dream and desire of God
for justice and righteousness
freedom and peace
holiness and compassion.

Of necessity
our intention takes the form of action
the word becomes flesh
and there is a new creation:
the old passes away.

The change
may by degrees seem infinitely small
or astonishingly grand and glorious:
who can know for sure?

And it may be that the change
has already come
only now our eyes are opened
and we are witnesses.
