18th February 2018 – Lent 1B (COCU 19B)

(Mark 1:9-15)
Pressed by the Spirit
alone and yet not alone
in the wilderness.

Tempter, beasts, angels:
Jesus’ ministry, begun
in the wilderness.

Perhaps we regard
Mark’s a gospel full of tweets,
but danger lies there.

We rush on, thinking
too little of two verses
in the wilderness.
