  • Pastor’s Pondering – February 6, 2019

    I’ve had that thorn for years,

    But it flared up a few days ago,

    Acerbating a splinter

    That was new and fresh-

    Or maybe It was the splinter

    That made the thorn flare up-

    But anyway, I muttered “God,

    Why is this necessary?”

    But I didn’t hear God answer.

    Instead I heard the mothers

    Of murdered sons,

    I heard the generations

    Born and buried in refugee camps,

    Living off commodities.

    Instead, I heard the men

    Living in villages long since made irrelevant

    By a world changed too wrong,

    Too fast,

    By our greed.

    So I will not ask God anymore questions,

    Not for myself.

    But the gathered faithful of this world

    Should make our prayers

    A thorn in the flesh of God,

    On behalf of those who suffer

    From the evils of our sin.
