Pastor’s Pondering – October 10, 2018

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month.

 Five-

The number of young men, 5, arrested

In Martin last week-

LAST WEEK-

For beating their wives or girlfriends.

 

How many the week before-

How many last year-

How many in our lifetime-

How many MORE?

 

Lord, have mercy-

And Lord, have fury

On us who ignore,

On us who offer little more

Than thoughts and prayers.

LORD, anger us and send us

To preach good news

To be good news

To repent

To transform lives.

Now, please.

Amen.
