Does that sound too much, having to share, imagine it, the apostles and Jesus discussing the value of sharing, well, why do you want to keep it when you have to give it away anyway, and when you get old, they will watch to see how your doing, wondering when they will get their share, meanwhile you will worry about who you left out, while the lawyer reminds you of the tax shelters available while you worry more, about the tax consequence of giving this person that and that person that, well, i never liked her anyway, just make it easy on yourself says Jesus, share while it’s good not while your weak, your father in heaven knows what you do, and you might even be helping an angel, and the consequences of that, your recorded in the annals of the good. And you wont have to worry about inheritance tax or leaving others out, thereby getting rid of all those resentments. I can see saint peter shaking his head, while he calls the apostles over, he’s right you know. Sharing makes everything better, amen. Grumpy old men nod their heads, he’s always right, amen. And when you need help, well, you have it too!.
Are you reliable, do you change depending on who you meet, are you the same before lunch or evening dinner, do you put on the act, do you try to sound sincere and right, good at the smile are you, had good acting lessons, whatever it was, Solomon was confused. Over the years he heard so many outcries about so many crises, from so many different faces, many of them celebrity faces, does that sound rhythmic, i suppose, not trying to sound anything but honest
actually. But when all is said and done, wasn’t consistency what made your mother’s dinner so enjoyable, they always tasted good, morning afternoon or night, same with wisdom from above, always consistent, amen.
Solomon was recalling the story of old, and how stubborn the Pharaoh was, when Moses asked him to free the Hebrew slaves from captivity. The arrogance of the Pharaoh is legendary, and Moses had to go to him over seven times, with worsening prophesy before he relented, and set them all free, only to bring destruction on his army when he changed his mind, as his ego and pride overcame him, come on I’m the Pharaoh after all. It was a lesson in pure pride and arrogance in the face of Divine Power. later when those who are freed rebel against the One who free them, they endure their own catastrophes, and Moses and what happened, as we know, is not fantasy.
3,000 odd years later, the world finds itself at a crossroads. A pope arrives from the ends of the earth, and a voice is found in a world that almost deserted the Almighty almost, bridges are built, and understanding and commonwealth as Leonard Cohen sang about, begins to grow again. Of course there are still the few arrogant, who assume that might and power will overcome whoever they choose, as is evident in some places. Solomon sighed, what does it take for them to learn, the world is only a temporary affair and when your time is up, you have to account for it’s welfare. having encountered divine intervention in his own life, and experiences with it, he was wondering, when will they learn. Jesus argued forgiveness to the point of perplexing his own apostles at the time, when getting even was what they had in mind for their oppressors. Leave it to the Father, he knows everything, amen. As Jesus says, it’s your faith that allows God to heal you.
A handful of observers in Vietnam, a desire for a more open America, a disdain for the so called experts, and an appreciation and time for his Children, and then a bullet to the head, after which there was an unleashing of a plot, aimed at controlling our very world. How many years ago, this very evening, on the eve of that eventful trip,
he was sitting down with his children, whom he adored, a real family man, not an organisational flunk, whose only desire was power, had a deep disregard for the lobbyists, and thought that all presidential contenders should be state funded, given a budget to fight it out, leading to a better form of democracy. In the meantime, the arms industry flourished, the nuclear threat gathered force, and righteous leaders across the world were got rid of, all in his absence. Warned the world in a variety of ways, and what do we have, 54 years after his murder, a world on the brink. The men behind his murder, have left a legacy many never could get over, but at least JFK, left us with the hope, there are actually people who think there is a better way, amen.
He’s a diplomat, one of ours, providing us with secret information, she’s only a child, he’s foaming all around her, but he’s a diplomat, he’s on our side. you know, provided us with data, would have taken years, she’s replaceable say the C.I.A. war on drugs, name a doctor that oversubscribes, I mean it, just one and I’ll be mightily surprised.

Cheap hotel across the road, and an orphanage as well. Outrageous, you mean they arrested Mr. big, that cocaine importer, furnishes information and girls as well. He’s one of ours, you hear it night and day, we look after our own, the buzz words they use, when the criminals get their way. Paris New York Hong Kong Rome, story is the same, honesty mingles with evil, evil wins out every way. Eating their way through the world, piece by piece, heart after heart, stripping out what’s good, tearing the world apart. Till they came to the tree of life. When they tried to cut it down, free will was thrown out. Gotya smiled God Most High, who waited with the patience of a monk, wondered when they’d get here, sure enough they found out, that God Most High, does not break the rules of man, but acts quickly when the heat is on, and as for trees, they are the life blood of so many creatures, especially the ones rooted in love, adam and eve all over again, this time I’m gonna win. De dum dum dum, de dum dum dee…you haven’t seen the last of me. Peter hurry up with the wine, dinner is served, roasted soul served on a bed of coals, with a little petrol for dessert on the side, whoosh. Seconds available, don’t think your appetite will last that long.
