Sunday 17th November – 33C

LUKE 21:5-19
The Teacher, when asked,
asserted as much:
things will get worse before they get better.
death perhaps
war over religion or energy supply or resources
natural disaster
false prophets with the promise
of better times:
the way of the world.

But there is hope in the Teacher’s word.
Persist in
love of God
care for the earth
compassion for our neighbour
hospitality to the alien
helping others to endure
following the Way of the Teacher —
and share
in life in all its fullness.
         Jeff Shrowder, 2013.
