Respecting the awesome power of words!

Ps in a Pod

We sometimes consider
whether the possessions we hold
really belong to us; whether,
in the divine scheme of creation,
we were intended
to maintain material abundance.

  The bigger question –
  one transcending redistribution –
  is an examination
  of privilege and power.

    When the latter two –
    privilege and power –
    are wielded and yielded
    in healthful and holy ways,
    possessions become both
    a tool for justice and
    a path toward community.
