Maintain your delusion: Bring your own Derwents

Hand coloured linocut 30 x 30 cm. A comment on the coral bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef. Dedicated to the Climate Change Deniers, of which the Australian Federal Government has more than a few. (Derwents are a well known brand of coloured pencil.)

See, I am sending you.

A cluster of haiku.

As lambs among wolves,
so, my friends, I send you out:
bearers of good news.

Pronounce God’s shalom.
The blessing will find a home
in children of peace.

As they welcome you
those people, too, will be blessed;
God’s reign coming near.

Not all will listen,
some will not see the kingdom.
Still, it has come near.
