December 26th

“For the fascination of wickedness obscures what is good,” Wisdom of Solomon 4:12a

when our obsession
with damaging tweets
keeps us from hearing
whispers of hope;
when the angry words
of petty people prove
more attractive than the
grace we could offer
in their place;
when our compulsion
to share every foolish
comment the crass utter
but not the invitations
to find healing from
the communities of
the forgotten;

have mercy on us,
have mercy
