Lectio Haikus


I am so blest to have the opportunity to teach middle school students Religion.  Today we did Lectio Divina using the upcoming Gospel for Sunday the 5th  week of Easter; John 14:1-12.  I encouraged the students to write Haikus using the words from Scripture.  I've included a few in this blog for your reading enjoyment.  So, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
God is forever,
Believe that I'm your Father,
I am truth, way, life.
(Christopher R.)
Believe in one God,
Always have faith in the Lord,
Heaven is your goal.
(Zach)
Jesus, I trust you,
You said you are the Father,
Jesus I believe!
(Jessica)
All believe in Me,
The Father and I are one,
We are truth and life.
(Michael)
Philip said to him,
Master, show us the Father,
"Still you don't know me?"
(Danny)
You have faith in God,
Don't let your hearts be troubled,
Have faith in me, too.
(Scott)
Jesus said to him,
No one come to the Father,
Except through the truth.
(Matthew)
Do not be troubled,
You have faith in God and me,
You will know the way.
(Morgan)
You have faith in God,
Where I go you know the way,
I'm the way and truth.
(Brianne)
We will know the way,
The way towards God and Jesus,
God shall dwell in us.
(Katey)
I am the Father,
Don't let your hearts be troubled,
I'm the lamb of God.
(Devin C.)
Jesus said to us,
Don't let your hearts be troubled,
You have faith in God.
(Wyatt M.)
Show us the Father,
For whoever believes shall,
Have known the Father.
(Maressa)
Have I been with you,
For so long a time and you,
Still do not know me?
(Hannah)
Believe me that I,
am the Father and he is
In me, too.  Amen
(Hannah)
Our vocation is
to always go and serve the
Lord and his people.
(Tommy)
Jesus said to us,
No one comes to the Father,
except through his Son.
(John)
You have faith in God,
That will be enough for us.
Do you not believe?
(Wyatt B.)
Have faith in me, too,
I am the way and the life,
I'm in the Father.
(Megan)
Jesus said to us,
If you know God the Father,
Then you know Jesus.
(Maddie)
Have faith in me, too,
Where I go I know the way,
Show us the Father.
(Pete P.)
Whoever believes,
Who does the work that I do,
Will go to the Lord.
(Josh)
Master, show us the
Father, that will be enough
for us to believe.
(Shelby)
Show me the Father,
Don't let your heart be troubled,
Please have faith in me.
(Elizabeth)
Have faith in the Lord,
and you and I shall dwell in,
God's house forever.
(Ashley)
You dwell in my life,
Jesus, I have faith in you,
Show us all your works.
(Luke)
Jesus told his friends,
I'm the way, truth and the life,
Do you believe me?
(Emily)
The faith is in me,
I do not speak on my own,
Just believe in God.
(Kristen N.)
Lord hear me crying,
Father, show us your mercy,
For I live in you.
(J.C.)
Where are you going?
To prepare a place for you,
In my Father's house.
(Deven L.)
If  you know me then,
You also know my Father,
Do not be troubled.
(Taylor)
If we believe him,
Jesus will show us the way,
To heaven and God.
(Kristen S.)
I am the Father,
Believe in me said Jesus,
I believe in you.
(Jamaica)
Do you believe that,
I am in the Father, the
Father is in me?
(Jake)
