A Social Justice Sermon

English For Poets


Churches have failed us. Hell is seen

and tolerated in the absence of courage.

No longer is the message go out 

and love and pray for peace. Go out.

When you see evil, bravely intervene

and correct it, Christ like. Be not afraid.

Be what you believe.


Where is your strength when it is needed

at home on this battlefield? What is said

in jest at table need be severely edited.

The conditional reconciliation can no longer

be compromised of wished for love and peace.

The traditional phasing out and tamping down,

settling, and forgotten had serious drawbacks.


Like a Crusader heading for the Holy Land,

it is now time for personal morality, fomented

with dedication, to suffer the hardships

of being practiced.
