John’s Java

Java with John

I wonder how he takes his coffee?
Or would he go for tea?
This instance of historic holiness
Sitting in our putrid mess

Wesley preached a mighty sermon
Lived a life shrunk from ermine
Forbearance he taught
Universality for naught

But what did he teach us
What can we learn
The heart of his theology
Is his astute pneumatology

To live a life in the Spirit
Collecting gifts and fruit
To love as we are loved
Communion with the unloved

So John will ye have a latte
With you being older than Kawate
I know enough not to offer Rioja
But what about a mocha?
