So Many Faithful

So many churches --
storefronts, stone --
sound bells to call
believers home.
Such heavenly voices,
gospel choirs,
rock the pews
set hearts afire.
So many faithful
clap and shout
chase away
blues, fear, and doubt.
Young souls, old saints
find repair
on bended knee
so deep in prayer.

by Carole Boston Weatherford, from Sidewalk Chalk, page 27
