08 October 2023 – Sunday 27A (COCU 59A)

(Exodus 20:1-4)
The smoking mountain,
thunder, lightning, trumpet sound:
they saw and trembled.

Thus God handed down
rules for a fractious people
to live by in awe.

Ten commandments
summarising many more,
for living as two.

It’s simple, really:
Love God – and love your neighbour
as you love yourself.
