Comfort Zone – acrostic

Has your church ever had a ‘Year of Mission’? Okay, the following acrostic is intended to be tongue-in-cheek, but hands up anyone who never felt like this? And apologies to anyone out there who might be called Rory – I’m sure you’re braver than the rest of us.

Cosily cocooned in church, Rory’s in a safe place
Occasionally somebody may appear a bit contrary,
Mostly, though, people show him kindness and grace,
Folk quite similar to him, no-one too scary.
Observing life go by, Rory’s gradually greying;
Risk-taking for him means five minutes praying
Trying not to listen to what God might be saying.

Zero impact – that’s just hunky-dory,
Outreach and challenge are greatly to be feared,
No-one needs to be told about Jesus (according to Rory),
Evangelism and mission – well they just seem weird.
