Creation through God, the Divine Force — humans look to the facts
As I write this, even as you read it — those are certain human acts
In the beginning is the Word
And the Word is with God
And the Word is God
And the Word is the bird
That Jesus talked about
THEME The Vision that Transforms
THOUGHTS FOR REFLECTION
1. To see Christ in another human being is illumination. To see Christ in all human beings is transfiguration.
THEME: Awareness of Divinity –
Access to our Inner Well.
Immersion in water –
Immersion in the Earth’s life.
One of Marcus Borg’s favorite examples of how poetry enriches liturgy:
Our created and conscious selves were, some way, divinely brought about
The figurative “hand of God” as eternally present, there’s very little doubt!
Hopeless to help in this violence, this crisis,
here in the focus of bloodshed and fear,
common humanity binds us together,
love at the centre, not hatred’s veneer.
Have you ever seen
in your life
than the way the sun,
relaxed and easy,
floats toward the horizon
A meandering stream runs close to a rural church dear to his childhood
With clear water in springtime, turned a sullied brown by summer’s end
Mystic, poet, philosopher, and theologian Howard Thurman’s reminds of the true meaning of Christmas in his poem, “The Work of Christmas.”
Out of this house where there is no room
For the little ones that to him belong
(He is weak but he is God)
This is no time for a child to be born,
With the earth betrayed by war & hate
And a comet slashing the sky to warn
That time runs out & the sun burns late.
