All things apposite not opposite,

birth emergent out of universe

that reaches always for transcendence

without ever leaving immanence.

Natality easing into life consciousness,

body in soul, never soul confined to body.

Ecumenicity ensuring cosmic inclusiveness,

catholicity providing whole earth identity,

protestation keeping boundaries open,

pentecostal fire retaining enthusiasm,

orthodoxy securing tentative limits,

heterodoxy escape from dogma,

and good faith, in all faiths,

offering love, passed on, not back;

pastors as prophets

and prophets pastors too,

in cyclical ceaseless creativity,

gift of life eternal.


And… language

being only mundane metaphor,

these terms with any other name

hold just as true

to an ineffable unity in totality,

confined frame containing all being.
