2015.09.27: inclusively good

Jesus said to his disciples, “For whoever is not against us is for us.” – Mk 9:40

there is one source
from which all goodness flows
whether or not the fountain knows

any good that is done
comes from the one source
whether or not the doer believes

there are many rivers
that follow different courses
but empty into the one ocean

everyone who are pilgrims
may travel divergent paths
but all end at one destination

there are many nations
that spring from many places
but only one father of all

all who are of good will
are brothers and sisters for us
and are not against us
