The Meaning of Life, Part 19

A friend sent this when I needed it:


Certain in-charge church people
expound upon the finer points of doctrine
while the disenfranchised await the verdict.

Meanwhile the holy fools rush in
And touch the outcasts,
creating Good News once again.

- Ann Weems, Kneeling in Jerusalem
John Knox Press, 1993
