Cornelius To Peter at the Feast

(if you are viewing this via email, the website has a recording of this poem and commentary; click the title above)


In this poem, I imagine how Cornelius (Acts 10) may one day tie together the promises to Abraham (Genesis 17-21) with how he himself came to be part of Abraham’s promised lineage.

Here’s one of the passages that was in my mind when I was reading Acts 10:

I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 8:11 (NIV)

“Soar” in the last line has two meanings: take flight and increase.
