Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

God's Person?

it could be a lot of things
S for Steve, Stephen, Stevie
Stephen Paul if I'm in trouble
S for self
in search of self
is cooler than Steve
which reminds me
of some 50's
sitcom character
the nice guy
in the cardigan
with highwater slacks and
black shoes

Stevie, the skinny little guy
in black plastic glasses
big ears
and a crew cut
bony knees
total geek
a bit out of sync
with the guys with hair
those places
who have left their mothers behind

ah yes
once the earnest young
philospher, theologian
going to be
a star someday
listened to admired

now, no longer so hopeful
but still hoping
to make a difference somewhere
God’s person???


2 Cor 5:16-20: So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.

In Christ we are God's people
In Christ there is always hope!
