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.

Mary Mary

Mary Mary
What ya gonna call that baby.....

In the light of the events at Sandy Hook
I started thinking about Mary
and not just Mary


and Jesus

The words of scripture echo....
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only son....."

The images of scripture haunt us
Mary pondering
Mary at the foot of the cross

God understands
better than we can ever comprehend
God understands
and God
is with us
going through this pain...
knowing this pain

and working
to make good emerge from evil
to transform
