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 revealing

Whenever an individual or a business decides that success has been attained, progress stops.
                                                                                       ~ Thomas J. Watson

when the church decided God was done

that all that was to be said
was already said

when the Bible became an ending point
not something pointing toward the Kingdom

when words meant to be read in the spirit
became a system of rules
an excuse for ideology
dead words on a page

then the progressive revelation of God in this world

and what was living and vital
became dead an entombed

denying resurrection

a living God
a resurrection God
requires a willingness to go to
continually new places

even, sometimes
a fresh take on old world

for God is always doing “a new thing”
can you not see it?
