The true believers are, of late, being beset by trials and tribulations. ‘Frinstance the attendees of the New Deliverance Evangelistic Church of Chesterfield.

And Then There’s The Bad News…

In the packed Chesterfield New Evangelical pews
The rapt congregants strained to hear the Good News,
Another finely inflected sermon by Bishop Gerry Glenn;
What comfort we took in his ringing words, back then.

With the blind faith that’s held true for two thousand years,
With eyes rolling up towards Heaven Glenn quelled all fears,
‘My God is mightier than any puny virus’ he sermonised,
Unfortunately, his theology proved to be compromised.

Now the mighty voice of God has faded away
And those left in his congregation quietly say
‘No one regrets being here to hear Glenn preach
but just how far and wide did his last words reach?’

  1. Leave it to Bishop Glenn to inspire us
    To believe God’s love would save us from the virus.
    But little did some know it would require us
    To hope said virus wasn’t MORE desirous,
    And so did it transpire, thus
    To, from this life, retire us.

  2. Love it, and admire it!
    I’ll write a reply- or I ll try. Hey doesn’t God loves a trier?
    According to those screeds of papyrus
    All ya need to defeat some pestilential virus
    Is Faith in some father, a son and something vaporous;
    Sorry, even my gullible mind can’t grasp a cure so nebulous,
    I might have once, but I do believe I’m now not so credulous.

  3. Missive from the Miraculous Acceptance of the Glorious Assumption (MAGA for short.)
    Lord, bless us your trusting souls,
    Gathered still, still as the bell tolls-
    Lord keep us from the Grim Reaper.

    As up on high to Your light mine eyes roll
    Lord, I pray, weigh down the collection bowl-
    God, could this congregation get much cheaper?

    Lordy, though I try to aspire to your higher goals
    My burning desire’s to Keep Don riding high in the polls-
    Even if Saint Peter sends me someplace deeper.
