PREACHING INTO POVERTY

The Preacher or The Poor?

YES! YES! God help me.
I’m just a tiny Money Spider
Up, up, up
And down in a rut.
Up, up, up
And down in a rut.
Up, up, up
And down in a rut.
Hot-footing it across
This radiator plain
Or, you might say,
Playing with fire.

[Andrew Rudd, a former Cheshire Poet Laureate, led another wonderful poetry session at Chester’s Diocesan Clergy Conference. An element involved in Preaching into Poverty is keeping one’s eyes open … seeing what’s around us … maybe writing or speaking about what things “Out of the Ordinary” say to us. For the umpteenth time: thanks Andrew]
