Super Sunday

Bread and Circuses (album)

The much hyped, made for TV sporting spectacle in Texas this weekend, reminds me of a quote from 1st Century AD Roman poet, Juvenal. He wrote in his Satire X:

 “Give them bread and circuses and the they (citizens) will never revolt.” 

As I read the troubling headlines both domestically and abroad,  I fear far too many of us have our loaf and ticket in hand.

Please pass me the bread bowl and dip, it’s almost kickoff time.

Please pray for our world and our leaders for wisdom and peace.
