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.

Good News! Good News!

“Turn around and believe that the good news that we are loved is better than we ever dared hope, and that to believe in that good news, to live out of it and toward it, to be in love with that good news, is of all glad things in this world the gladdest thing of all. Amen, and come Lord Jesus.”
              Frederick Buechner, The Clown in the Belfry: Writings on Faith and Fiction


there is good news
God is love
And more!
God loves us, unconditionally

God fills us with love
God’s love flows through us to others
God helps us live out our potential
And helps us raises others up

so we can all live our birthright,
as divine children

Ah, but,

we do our best to make the good news bad news
we get all wrapped up in law
we become judgmental
and spiritually arrogant

we think “our way” is the only way

we re-create God in our image

we use hate and fear instead of love
as the weapons for change

but the good news is
better than we can imagine
and God?

well God is God
and try as we might
we cannot limit God
or contain God

no matter how much we may get in the way
God’s love can, and does
get through

to touch
to heal
to transform

that is the good news

and we can live out of it
and in it
and toward it

Thy Kingdom Come!
