Humanity treated as cannon fodder and shot by their own for being human.
A lesson in disgrace.

Excellent powerful writing.

GOOD MORNING ANDREW ! THANKS FOR THE TRIBUTE ! The Salvation Army rush in where often other *ANGELS* fear to TREAD ! They are not Judgemental ~ their ACTIONS speak much louder than words. Their magazine (in SPAIN) is called GRITA DE LA GUERRA ~ WAR CRY ~ They are Soldiers of the Cross against SATAN & EVIL in the World. It takes COURAGE to wear the UNIFORM and BOLDLY GO ....... ! Salvationists I have met are all Humble (except for their BRASS BANDS which bring a touch of NORTHERN BRASSHNESS to Essex Boys & Girls !). Thanks for carin* & sharin* !

Blessings & Joy & Love & Peace
Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

Words, not followed by act, are cheap and easy to come by.

Thanks for saluratory tale ! The GOOD BOOK exhorts us to be not just HEARERS of the WORD (SERMONS) but to be DOERS of the WORD also ! That is *Practice what we Preach* I (BRIAN) know hundreds of Christians in my Community who do just that ! They care for the Homeless and Rejected ~ YMCA ~ Night Shelter ~ Soup Run ~ SOS BUS ~ R S Bus (8 bed spaces etc) for ROUGH SLEEPERS ~ Church halls Open in Winter for Rough Sleepers etc etc. Our LOCAL MP said if you took the Church out of the TOWN it would be a much SADDER PLACE. OK there are bad eggs in every box. Its so so easy to find fault with the Church and overlook its Power for Good Worldwide ! I never hear anybody criticising The SALVATION ARMY !

Blessings & Peace & Love

Hahaha, brilliant done I could really picture that old lady.
Action will always be louder than words, it\'s how animals talk and its at the start but yet we have forgotten and think a voice is all we have!

Well penned, good sir ;)

And it\'s scary that religion often gives people \"cover\" to do their worst.

Yes, this is like our sermon/talk from yesterday. Jesus points to what He did - what He said is also equally valid. But many say one thing and do another.

People goto churches etc because it appears to be the right thing to do. They are not anymore good people than those staying away.
In fact, those running the churches are not good people, would you say the rich man who gets the poor to pay for his new roof is a good man? Well the churches are very wealthy organisations especially the RC church.... look it up on google.

They do get along because surely opposites attract.

I second that emotion, so long as they are equally receptive.

Bring on the aliens.

Suresh said:

\"OPPOSITES ATTRACT\" this attraction is exploration, getting out of our comfort zone (initially entrapped by love).
But as you asked, we need to get along for eternity (or at least for much longer)
Thnx

ANGELA & BRIAN said:

Thanks ANDREW ~ BRIAN HERE ! I have been a Prison Visitor (Liverpool) and worked with the YMCA and teaching Applied Science to Special Needs students. Also I teach Applied Sciece in a Vocational College. So every day I meet POEPLE who are not in my normal sphere of *Friends* I also travel a lot ! To me this is what makes life worthwhile to share time & space with a very wide range of People of different ~ Class ~ Culture ~ Creed ~ Colour etc. Having been raised in Liverpool one was raised in a very Multiethnic & Multicultural Society so it makes one very tolerant in the UK\'s increasingly Multicultural Society . The Church I attend has wide range of Nationalities & Class so it is a good environment to be *All things to All Men* SYNONYMS & ANTONYMS . Thanks for sharing & caring !

Blessings & Peace & Joy
Your as always BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

Hello Andrew,

A wonderful poem. Thank you and so true.

Meeting people different to ourselves is a wonderful voyage of self discovery and self realisation. A voyage which at times we are too scared to undertake.

Keep writing FineB.

There are those of us who will be able to relate to these fine words, even as we work through them... others , sadly but inevitably will come to understand in their own time.... a very powerful and emotionally charged poem Andrew sir....... Neville
