How Do We Say God?

How do we say God,
and why does it matter?
If whatever I do say
both is and is not good.

What is sufficient
to define a Creator?
The Sufis remind us
we face God each way.

How do we fix this
divine restoration?
To put back together
what anger tears apart.

Why do we want peace
and not just between terrors?
If God is our Alpha
then hate’s not Omega.

Why do we punish?
Our great hurts need healing.
How are we judging
those we have not yet faced?

How do we see God,
and why could this matter?
If health’s stretched out planning
builds more arms creating splatter.

If God is for health care,
and how could S/HE not be?
Then Love can’t be measured
in automated artillery.

Where is our rich soil
and how have we tilled it?
Or have we over-drilled it
for more blood and gore?

Why do we say God
and how does it matter?
For restoring Christ’s graced peace
sacred seeds grow together.

 

 

These lyrics more or less work with “Foregiveness”, by Susan Werner, on her The Gospel Truth CD.
