Help out


As Easter comes to a close here is a photograph of some Samaritans on Mount Gerizim in the West Bank overlooking Nablus.  I’m not sure how you tell the good Samaritans from the other ones.  I think there is a bit of good in all of us, if we choose to root it out.  Do something good for someone today.  If it makes you feel good try it again tomorrow!



On His Blindness; by John Milton

When I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
And that one talent which is death to hide
Lodg’d with me useless, though my soul more bent
To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest he returning chide,
“Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?”
I fondly ask. But Patience, to prevent
That murmur, soon replies: “God doth not need
Either man’s work or his own gifts: who best
Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. His state
Is kingly; thousands at his bidding speed
And post o’er land and ocean without rest:
They also serve who only stand and wait.”
