Paths to God

In my faith, my tradition
one path, Christ
the way, the narrow gate
atoning for sin
an offering, the lamb
given on the cross
buried in the tomb
rising, giving us life

An older, deeper path
part of the same flock
all of them, the people
the children of Abraham,
of Isaac, Jacob, of Moses
of David, all the people
under the law, walking
in that light

What of others
where do these paths lead
fealty to the creator,
loving our neighbor
are these enough
without naming one way
how many
are the paths to God
