In all our sanctuaries we sit at risk

One Reasonable Way



One reasonable way

to weigh God’s Creation

is to stand at night

in open space

and look upwards.


Infinite dark

vastness beyond measure



of nothing.


Scattered like dust

through this archway of nothing

you see pin-points of light

called stars.


But these, you learn,

although substantive,

are also dead,

truly of dust,

just nothing

made differently.


Keep looking.

It is a study in motion

of nothing to infinity


by dots of nothing.


Keep looking.

When in the beginning

God made the Word

he made it momentary. The silence He made

is infinite

and lasts for all time.
