Pentecost +11 Sunday – C1

Pentecost +11 Sunday – C1

Years C
Isaiah 1:1, 10-20 or Genesis15:1-6

Imagine G*D satiated. G*D has had it up-to-here with what G*D had thought would be a good thing - sacrifice. Stop, already!

There is no covering up who we are with the fanciest of offerings. When some cosmic bottom-line is measured, it won't be a matter of how much blood is spilt - but how much evil was avoided and how much good was initiated.

If we are willing to make this shift, the good of the land will more than flow in to fill whatever good we have sent forth. If we are not willing to make this shift, that which we have not held back (evil) will be as garlic mustard, teasel, and emerald ash borer in the American mid-west - invasive and uncontrolled.

Time's up. Still trying to substitute something in place of seeking justice? Forget it, the argument is over, it's justice or nothing.

= = = = = = =

purell kimcare provon
were too late on the market
for Lady Macbeth and preemptive warriors
who wring bloodless bloody hands

a next entrepreneurial opportunity
is not covering up what is already there
but a preventive cleansing
to keep purell from being needed in the first place

pure-el calls forth a new desire
to be elseways than el has been
and in turn to have el's images
transformed in our lifetime
