9th October 2016 – Sunday 28C

Apologies for this very late post. It’s been an interesting and very full week – and my brain needed a good deal of coaxing …

(Luke 17:11-19)
Nine kept walking,
healing taken for granted:
one returned in thanks.

Not recognising
how much we take for granted
hinders our wholeness.
      Jeff Shrowder 2016

In the course of writing this, several matters in the news
were also playing on my mind, and so:

Fearing the ‘other’,
outsider or refugee,
we cannot be whole.

Meals shared, stories heard,
as a group we grow in trust:
all together, whole.
