He Heard the Pastor Say

He heard the pastor say
that the average pastor
is simply too busy to
address the social con-
cerns of the day what
with sermons to write
and visits to be made
and administrative
responsibilities and
on and on and on.
He thought to himself,
I guess Jesus was too
busy thinking of
clever things to say
on the mount and on
the plain that he
couldn’t address social
issues; and then he
asked himself, but
weren’t all those clever
things exactly about in-
justice? Oh, right. Those
probably had something
to do with a cross and,
Lord knows, no pastor
wants to bear a cross
immediately trans-
lated as “keeping
a job.”
