A Free Offering – v2

The sacrifice of Christ
a sentient being
A free will offering
given on our behalf

Choosing to die
taking the cup
Drinking of our sin
becoming the sacrifice

Donning the fleece
the unblemished lamb
Taking on our stain
our lives in His hand

Giving himself
that we may live again
Hope in Him alone
in the blood of the Lamb

A Free Offering – v2
March 20, 2011
A Free Offering
Cuts approved by the NH House Finance Committee and
Constitutional Amendment proposed by Rep. Neal Kirk
to remove safety net of town welfare
John 3:16 versus Leviticus 4
calling on the NH Legislature
and the Governor
to spare those without a voice
those who need us
from the severe budget cuts
that are currently planned
in HB1 and HB2, etc.
in part based on the testimony
of The Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson,
Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire
