February Doings At C.cada Pt. 2


Sandy Freeman and one of her carvings.

C.cada is the artist’s ministry of Cornerstone Church our goal is to help people discover, develop and deploy their God given gifts for the church and for the community.

One Saturday a month our artists take over the church for a day. In the afternoon we host a class to help people discover their latent talents. This month I taught a class on the Shadorma form of poetry. We had four artists in attendance. Here are their works built from two prompts:

Crying. Holy God

Witness to

My spirit,

Fierce fire to cry out loud,

For my lost loved ones.

Seek healing.

Cry out to the Lord.

Breathe air in.

Prayer cries out,

With brothers and sisters who

Cry out with me here.


by Lisa Johnson

Consume me

Father with your love.

I cry out.

Fill me Lord

With your holy fire to shine,

To be a witness.

From ashes inside.


Sound Forth

Here I am.

Have you seen me?Lost

Now found. Force

The sound to

Ring far and wide over dark

Wasteland. Cry out loud.

Righteous Rage

by Brenda J. Lillie

I cry out.

Loudly I roar on.

My face red.

My eyes closed.

Righteous rage falls on me.

We need you Lord, now.

The Lord’s Witness

by Brenda J. Lillie

Show! Shine! Share!

Holy Lord be here.

Fall like Fire!

Hear my cry.

Let me be Your witness.

Shine through me today.

Brenda’s postcard from a few months ago. She needs 740$ in monthlky commitments now. That works out to 15 more partners at 50$ a month.

Here is a Shadorma Brenda wrote just for me after I finished off the Valentines cake.

No Cake for You!

by Brenda J. Lillie

I had none!

My cake they ate it!

Left none for 

Me ’tis true!

My cake they ate it all up.

I shall have no more!

    C.cada is always so much fun especially when we have writing workshops! I like to write in silence most of the time, well, not that day! A certain someone, who will remain nameless kept asking, “Are you done yet? Are you done yet? Are you done yet?” Needless to say I finished one poem, yay!!!
