Poem of the Week

Invitation to Hsiao Chü-shih

Written by Po Chü-i | Translated by Arthur Waley

They are people one meets, not people one cares for.
At my front door guests also arrive;
They are people one sits with, not people one knows.

A friend sent me the story below about a megachurch demolished in China. How sad. But not only that how unwise. For one thing, if China knew history they’d know that persecution usually results in a growth of Christians. Also the church would have had to get building permits to build this huge structure, who approved those?

I’ll be praying for these people.
