should be present in our minds…

Our first task in approaching
another people,
another culture,
another religion,
is to take off our shoes.

For the place we are approaching
is holy.
Else we find ourselves
treading on another’s dream.

More seriously still,
we may forget
that God was present
before our arrival.
