when he saw their faith

There is a story in the Bible
of a man
whose friends remove a roof
to bring their friend to Jesus

they lower him on his mat
above the heads of the people
and drop him at the Healer’s feet.

Today in church
I watched a girl–
no more than 6 years old–
leave
and return during a hymn
carrying a walker

took both hands
pulled up to her chin
legs clanging against the pews

but it got her grandma to
the communion rail

Some say the stories in Scripture
never happened

I say not true

How can they not have happened
when they are still happening?
