THIS WAS A FAILURE OF THE RURAL CHURCHES

This was a failure of the rural churches,
those postcard-pretty steeples flanked by fields.

This was a failure of shepherds
who know their sheep so well
that they are afraid to challenge them,
shepherds who would rather refuse Communion
to a politician who supports Roe v. Wade
than to a politician who sows hate,
who find it easier to teach Thou Shalt Nots
than to call out glaring social sin.

Good pastors and church ladies,
it’s not too late to jump in.
A new battle for America’s collective soul
has just begun.
