Ironical thoughts

Well,you know,we could not have saved the European Jews  from the Holocaust because how could we have fitted 6 million people into Britain? Or even one million?So we had no choice.And if Jesus was there… tough!

Sometimes we are talking at different levels of discourse.Life is sacred yet especially  since 2001 we have seen much that has horrified us and terrified the suffering masses in the Middle East.

Now, if God wanted those refugees to live would he not have sent  them help?

God:I did send help.. it is US

Someone told me that if we let these in it wil encourage more to come ; the ones who are coming have little choice as the refugee camps have no more food in Jordan and Lebanon…But is it right to turn our eyes away?

That sweet embrace

Though love is welcome when at first it dawns

And even when it ripens in the sun

Soon  may  come sensations  all forlorn

A dread that asks us what  love might become.

For yearning as we do for hope and care

Yet also don’t we fear to lose our self?

And so to wonder fearful how we’ll fare

Blighting both our spirits and our health.

The risks of loss and gain are  not yet known

A judgement must be made on partial facts

To be at once too  trapped  and  too alone

To treat the other with  both truth and ttact

With faith and trust we show  our human face

And hope we each survive that sweet embrace
