To the Leaders of Traction

To the leaders of Traction

I am a witness to your love in action

                                    love exceptional 




                                             unsinkable love


                                    love that embraces

                                            transcending cultures and races

                                            creating safe spaces

                                            for young faces

                                                    of those who are hungry





                                                                                and lost

                                                              no matter what the cost


I am a witness to love in action 

                  displayed by the leaders of Traction

                   starting a chain reaction

                            of caring


                                daring the youth to grow deeper in their faith


I am a witness to leaders who stand

                                      on mountains of prayer

                                      that underpins their deep, honest care

                                      the burden they share

                                      for our children to be aware

                                                                                    of God’s great love!


I am a witness to leaders’ hearts that are broken

                                            by secrets unspoken

                                                        to love unending

                                                        grace ever extending

                                                        no pretending 

                                                        true, honest agape’-love


To the leaders of Traction

I am a witness of your love in action
