Poem of the week

From The Sailing of the Ark No 40

By Godfrey Rust

(Free to use in church services and church magazines, )


Our African friend Kenneth says
his church depends on spiritual power

because they've no money for medicines.
Our sceptical analysis is nothing more

than the reasoning of the rich, who have placed
their faith in the NHS and BUPA

to insure against such acts of God.
These healings are

like early blossom of a coming summer:
this is his nursing love, to ease

the symptoms of a dying world, where health
is a mercy and not a right; and where although

the antidote was given long ago, it still appears
sin's virulence must run its bloody course.
