The preacher stood there and said it,

He said “Apathy is a great enemy”.

Yes if we do nothing

And those around us are doing wrong,

Apathy is an enemy.

But if those around us

Are doing wrong to get a reaction,

A reaction from us,

Apathy is a great weapon.

    A fine write Gold. I thought you was gonna say: The minister started off: 'Apathy is... ..' and the congregation had already dozed off! heehee.

    Thanks UNCLE ANDY ~ BRIAN here. Im still laughing at the SILENT MONKS version of the HALLELULAH CHORUS ! Im posting it to several of my Friends who conduct Choirs and daring them to Practice it for CHRISTMAS. We have a bit more LIBERTY in Evangelical Circles ! We often do Choruses with the Kids with Words on Boards ! YOUTUBE is mine of Goodies. Check Angelas poem with CAT STEVENS "Morning has Broken ~ Beautiful Video !
    I agree with the sentiment in your Discourse. For those who would provoke us A Gentle Answer or No Answer does (in my experience) turn away wrath. Thanks for caring & sharing.

    Blessings & Peace to YOU & JOYCE
