Strangers Be Damned!

(A Haiku Quartet)
by Jim Rapp

Two thousand years past,
the Evangelicals’ Lord –
admonishing them –

declared, “Just as you
show love to the least of these
you show it to me.”*

When we turn away
the needy from our shore we
turn away our God,

Who frequently comes
in a skin that challenges
our brotherliness.
