We see a Muslim sheltering a refugee,
a Hindu healing the sick,
spiritual but not religious folks
willing to stand against immigration bans,
of people from other countries,
atheists who practice civil disobedience
for the sake of creation care
and young people
walking out of their high schools today,
to keep guns out of the hands
of those who should not have them,
including math teachers and soccer coaches.
And Jesus says, Do not stop them.
Whoever is not against us
is for us. Whoever gives a cup of water
to a child of God is holy.
But whoever puts a stumbling block,
bump stock, semi-automatic
in front of children,
and psychologists, concert goers,
church folks and queer clubbers,
woe to them.
As for the rest of you –
if it is your money or prestige,
your politics or busyness,
that keeps you from acting –
cut it off.
What if —
you get a little salt of the earth
in your life.
