Ode to Auckland

Auckland, you are a city where everyone has a scheme to better themselves,
but things are not as they seem.

You are a city where everyone is on the make,
but you have forgotten your maker.

You are a city where everyone is doing a deal to get ahead,
but your schemes will fail,
and your coffee houses will be left empty and your deals undone.

False dreams will turn to despair and pain,
but you will receive the gospel again.

You will gather together in your homes and cafes,
to honour Jesus,
to seek his kingdom,
by the power and friendship of his Spirit.
