19 July 2020 – Sunday 16A (COCU 48A)

WHEAT, WEEDS AND A VIRUS
(Mt 13:24-30, 36-43)
There’s a parallel
between the virus , the weeds
and our behaviours?

Despite our efforts,
distancing, hand-washing, masks,
some refuse to ‘get it’.

They flout or ignore
measures for the common good:
we are all undone.

We are all anxious,
all creation is groaning,*
yearning for the day

Perhaps vigilance,
hard work, compassion succeed…
Dare we imagine?
        Jeff Shrowder, 2020
*Romans 8:12-25
