"2. The distinctive Christian reality is Jesus Christ himself."
Hans Küng

Focus on Christ.
Don't be entangled in doctrine and dogma.
Don't be distracted by legend and myth.
Focus on Christ.

Don't show me a choc'late box Christ.
Show me the teacher, dusty from the road,
Beaten by sun, wind and rain,
Bringing the Good News to the people.

Don't show me a doctrinaire Christ.
Show me the pastor, love in his eyes,
Sharing our grief and our joy,
Showing the Way to the Kingdom.

Don't show me a mythical Christ.
Show me the real, historical Jesus,
Laughing and crying, living and dying,
Calling God Father and making us kin.

Focus on Christ.
Don't be entangled in doctrine and dogma.
Don't be distracted by legend and myth.
Focus on Christ.
