24 March 24 – Palm/Passion Sunday B (COCU 24B)

(Isaiah 50:4-9)
Standing by the road
they cried, “Hosanna!” (Save, please!)
from their ‘daily grind’.

Grinding oppression,
poverty, abuse, sickness:
all manner of things.

Morning by morning
Isaiah cared to listen
for God’s words of help.

And like Isaiah
Jesus spoke and lived
a disciplined life.

Some decried their words
while others heard life and hope,
morning by morning.

How does my living
sustain, encourage others
in their ‘daily grind’?
