Who Is My Mother, Who Is My Brother?

       Who is my mother,
       who is my brother?
all those who gather round Jesus Christ:
       Spirit-blown people
       born from the Gospel
sit at the table, round Jesus Christ.

       Differently abled,
       differently labeled,
widen the circle round Jesus Christ,
       crutches and stigmas,
       culture's enigmas,
all come together round Jesus Christ.

       Love will relate us --
       color or status
can't segregate us, round Jesus Christ:
       family failings,
       human derailings --
all are accepted, round Jesus Christ.

       Bound by one vision,
       met for one mission
we claim each other, round Jesus Christ:
       here is my mother,
       here is my brother,
kindred in Spirit, through Jesus Christ.
