Sunday Morning Series- 5: On Divine Intervention

by Gary Hardaway

What does God find abhorrent?
Apparently not
the Roman torment of His people
nor subsequent Roman torment
of Wiccans, Huguenots, and Indios.
Not the Camps.
Not the Kmher Rouge.
Not the Cultural Revolution.
Not the genocide from sea to shining sea.

Disobedience under the influence
of snakes and fruit,
impatience and thirst
among the desert rocks,
the reflexive move to steady a tilting ark,
and an over the shoulder glance back at home,
despite home's wickedness,
all merit Godly intervention, though.

For He's a jealous and mysterious God
and just a little psycho.
