Lent 12; do we weep?- pondering Luke 13: 31-35

Do we

weep?

Do we

desire

to protect,

to gather,

to mother,

to stand

between good

and evil,

praying on earth

as it is in heaven?

Are we

seeking peace…?

+

And which cities draw our tears today?

Kiev,

Mariupol,

Moscow…

+

As 81 are executed in Saudi Arabia….

the outcry is muted

by Russian bombs….

+

But don’t we all have blood on our hands?

don’t we all turn a blind eye,

as football clubs are snapped up

for fun by Oligarchs, and Arabian Princes?

+

Will we be held to ramsome

by the price of oil?

+

The poorest should not need to pay

the price of these wars….

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and a grandson). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
