Patheos just posted the most recent “theoblogger challenge,” in which they ask bloggers to respond to a question in 100 words or less. This season’s question: “Is God Coming?” Here is Christian Piatt‘s contribution:
Everything could be in this
harmony of moments,
nothing being until it already is,
convulsing in conversation that never ends.
We call, respond, swell and surge,
with urges too deep to claim as
only ours.We jump into nothing,
led only by a sense of the next,
the context of reflexive faith
is one that chases toward
but never reaches.
Faith teaches those who listen—
begs for refrain.
The pain of birth into new life is loss,
the cost of which is death to this life,
resurrected only by Love.
