lenten journal: "you are the light of the world"

Ginger preached from the lectionary passage this morning. Here's what I brought home.

“you are the light of the world”
I know were talking
about the difference
between daylight
and dark however
you of all people
ought to be able
to make room for
a little poetic license
I know about the dark
but today when I
heard your words
I thought of those
who claim to speak
for you in public
but they spew stones
and throw their weight
around to do damage
and your familiar call
had a new ring:
you didn’t call us
to be the heavy
Peace,
Milton
