The subject matter was ‘sin’ in a Haibun form. I took a rather harsh approach, but maybe not in the direction you would expect.
My sin is my shame,
not for you to pass judgement
but to pray for me.
Will you welcome me in church on the day of my sin? Most tend to think not, and therefore do not come. They fear the harsh judgment of those within and have not been informed correctly of the teachings of Christ. We talk a good game, us Christian folk, but all too often we fail to deliver. Would we wash the feet of the homeless man if he walked through the door on Sunday? Feed many with what we have to multiply? Shall we love the adulteress who confesses her sin, or set upon her with stones? Read the words again and answer the popular question of our time: what would Jesus do?
