About Today Readings

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. The Lord comes to judge the earth – Psalm 95(96):1, 3-5, 11-13. Luke 4:16-30.

They were amazed by his gracious words

He spoke to us of breaking chains,
of making blind eyes see,
of freeing slaves and prisoners,
and cancelling all debt,

He won our hearts. He spoke for God,
as if the prophet’s words
referred to him, a local lad.
Would God come to this dump,

this chippy’s son, to heal our world?
No, mark my words, he’ll end up
nailed to his father’s two-by-four.
Could God involve himself in that?
