Interpreting the Times

Interpreting the Times
Pentecost 10; Luke 12:49-59
Now how do we interpret present times?
We seldom try to read the Earth and sky.
We all have little screens with message chimes,
computer games to help the day go by.
First Nations walked on Country every day,
respecting Nature and the spirit life.
Their dances, songs and stories showed the way
to live in harmony, not greedy strife.
Did Jesus bring division to the Earth,
dividing those who hear from those who don’t?
Can any human judge another’s worth?
Can those who see tell truth to those who won’t?
Can we repent a culture gone astray
and learn to live on Earth a better way?
