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 antidote is love

When a preacher stoops to scare tactics
It is often wise to stand aloof,

For some gods may lose their patience
And start to throw their shoes at him


In a world run by fear
Dominated by fear
In world where fear is used to manipulate
and is a power source for those
who would make us over in their own image

God’s antidote
is love
and its constant companions


how dare we feed fear
in the name of One
who IS love?


This day Lord
may I see with the eyes of love
may my words
be love
may my hands hold love
may those I meet know
because of your love
flowing through me, that fear is not the only option
