Are we in the same boat? Some creative responses

Last week we called for creative responses to the question 'Are we all in the same boat?' Here are two of the responses.

Our Programme Manager Kathryn drew this cartoon. And Church Action on Poverty supporter Revd Jo Drew wrote this poem:

Are we all in the same boat?

Are we all in the same boat?
Isolated?
Marginalised?
Cut adrift?
Rudderless?
Anchorless?
Directionless?
Inner compass whirling
As the boat spins
Whirlpool whipped.
Whilst hands seek desperately to cling
To the wood that holds all together.
To the crossbar that keeps the boat afloat.
Jesus slept
When roaring waves reigned.
There is calm in the chaos
It’s edgy but it’s there.
We need to imitate the helmsman on the wood.
Who sees and reaches out to save.
We are all in the same boat.
But some are thrown in at the deep end…
