MERRY-GO-ROUND
Merry-Go-Round

Don't 
 let me ride 
 a gaudy 
merry-go-round 
 Christian experience: 
Up-and-down 
Round-and-round 
 noisy 
 fun 
 set to music, 
Never really getting 
 anywhere 
 but sadly back 
 to where 
 I first 
 got on. 
 - Nancy Spiegelberg



	
And beside this, giving all diligence, 
add to your faith virtue; 
and to virtue knowledge; 
And to knowledge temperance; 
and to temperance patience; 
and to patience godliness; 
And to godliness brotherly kindness; 
and to brotherly kindness charity. 

For if these things be in you, 
and abound, 
they make you that ye shall 
neither be barren 
nor unfruitful 
in the knowledge of 
our Lord Jesus Christ. 
2 Peter 1:5-8
