cornucopia

cornucopia

“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory… and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’

‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’

Matthew 25:31-40

what riches!

so many things we can buy,

dream about, 

wish to receive,

order online…

 

our cornucopia is overfull

(our landfill)

with iPads and Xboxes

programmable coffeemakers

refrigerators with TV screens,

we can’t count them all

 

our shelter is overfull

with men and women

veterans, children

hungry, cold–

can we see them?

 

(Rev. Martha Spong)
