On John 15: 1-5


Vines, pruned of thickened branches,
and vines, nurtured and cleansed,
we are healthy branches.
Living, lush, joyful,
we abide in the vineyard.
In the hope of God’s glory, transformed,
we live in anticipation .
The new creation may yet appear
to the glory of his name.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
