The Parable of the Talents

All of us from time to time
have dug our hiding places
and buried our songs
or our silver.

Thinking our voices too weak
and our offering too meager,
Out of fear
we have buried our talents.
What bothers us, of course,
is the reaction to the third servant,
for Jesus is talking
to us,
the ones who have been entrusted with
God's Word.
Jesus reminds us
that it is God's gifts we bury.
Let us, in this new Church resolve
to unearth our talents
and offer unto God all that we have
and are!
