11 September 2022 – Sunday 24C (56C)

(Luke 15:1-10)
Lost, found, celebrate:
(sheep or coin or Eurail Pass*)
overwhelming joy.

Joy that embraces
sinner, tax-man and outcast;
the searched-for and found.

Cosmic joy that sweeps,
gravitational wave-like,
across time and space.
    Jeff Shrowder, 2022
