10th July 2016 – Sunday 15C

NEIGHBOURS (Luke 10:25-37)
Who is my neighbour:
one from whom I can expect
good cheer, help and peace?

My neighbour is one
whose need is greater than mine
and demands mercy.
        Jeff Shrowder, 2016.
Note: The initial haiku first appeared three years ago.
 
 
TWO MORE thoughts on the subject:
 
Live to love God
and love my neighbour as myself.
And those I cannot love?
Perhaps within me hides something
I cannot love.
        Jeff Shrowder, 2016.
 
Love of God, neighbour and self
are bound
like a plait or braid:
interrelated,
interdependent,
completing.
        Jeff Shrowder, 2016.
