26 November 2017 – Reign of Christ (COCU 67A)

SHEEP AND GOATS?
(Matthew 25:31-46)
The refugee came
hungry, thirsty, even sick,
but was locked away.

Accommodated,
surrounded by razor-wire;
compassion shut out.

The powers decreed,
“You cannot arrive by boat!”
but some cried, “Unjust!”

And these who offer
compassion, justice and aid
are ‘agitators’.

Sheep and goats aside,
love your neighbour as yourself:
live with compassion.
Jeff Shrowder, 2017
