Pastor’s Pondering – August 29, 2018

WHILE READING ABOUT SLAVES,

ENDURING THEIR COMMON DESPAIR

 

The little bit of good

That we do for each other

Is not enough

To heal the wounds

Our hate and greed have caused-

We still limp across the field,

Coming home.

We still go to bed hungry

For what another had taken.

We still despair

For dreams aborted,

For promises that never breathed,

For memories lost

Never to be told again.

 

But that little bit of good

Will Be enough

To remind us

We are human,

And made for love.
