Believing in Life
Praying to end poverty
Christian Aid’s essential purpose therefore is to expose the scandal of poverty, to help in practical ways to root it out from the world and to challenge and change the systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised.
We contribute our passion and experience to the broad movement of people who use their faith, talents and energies to fight for a better life for all.
Day Seven of the National/Global Poetry Writing Month challenges us to write in tritina form – The tritina is a shorter cousin to the sestina, involving three, three-line stanzas, and a final concluding line. Three “end words” are used to conclude the lines of each stanza, in a set pattern of ABC, CAB, BCA, and all three end words appear together in the final line.
“Three, three-line stanzas . . .”
“End words to conclude . . .” – tricky

New hope born from death
‘So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. 17 Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others – one on each side and Jesus in the middle.’ – John 19:16-18
