10th November 2019 – Sunday 32C (COCU 65C)

(Luke 20:27-38)
They questioned Jesus –
quibbling, hypothetical,
trivial and crass.

Jesus answered them
quoting the prophet Moses
(whose words they knew well).

Now my questions start:
‘who are considered worthy’
that they have a place?

An immortal soul?
Human denial of death?
Our common failing.

Is it not enough
to rest in the Eternal
memory of God?
