  1. Thank you for dust sayings drawing attention today to such an interesting word – it sounds like nothing but a nuisance to clear before visitors are coming. perhaps, a thin layer of what In America might be ‘dirt’: but dirt has in it what every plant needs to grow, full of microscopic lives we cannot see. Making people from it is a truth every day as we eat what we have grown. Shaking it off your feet is perhaps an injunction to write off the life in the place.

  2. I wanted to put a range of dust-thoughts together (it’s a sort of apophatic thing), without necessarily having to pick a winner, or even make them talk to one another – there’s so much scriptural dust, it was hard to pick a representative sample… I might do another different one later.
