Thom Shuman: March 2018
If we showed you our hands,
Would you find them nicked
From building houses for the homeless
Or calloused from using the TV remote too much?
If we showed you our feet,
Would you find them toughened
By walking the corridors of a hospice
With the terminally ill,
Or wrinkled by too many hours in the hot tub?
If we showed you our hearts,
Would you find them broken
Over the struggles of the lost, the little, the least;
Or would they be clogged with the plague
of our consumerised lives?
God of the empty grave,
Show us how
To be your witnesses.
