Vignettes 2

Prologue
Man seeks with his reason
A path finite and slow.
But soon He shall find season
When it is God, love to show.

Reasonable?
Rel-a-tiv-is-m
Man’s self-derived self-reason
Spiritual death.

Truth
And the Word was God
Kai Logos ēn pros theos,
So, God walked with Man [1]

Physical
That which we have seen
Imprint on thought forever
First-hand witnesses [2]

Existential
Man’s finite wisdom,
Tra-gic-al-ly misses point
Heart forever mourns

Love
For wishing shadows
Hearts barren without warm light
God’s beckoning Love

Epilogue
Love forever more.
Our reason surely slows.
For man’s thinking so poor,
To us, our Lord surely shows.

His love is enough for each unique,
In dark corners shall ignite.
Our sorrowful hearts shall ever seek,
His overwhelming Light.

So, hope is eternal
Man’s path to God’s eyes.
What once thought reasonable,
Now deceitful lies.

In joyful heart e’er indwelt,
The Spirit and the true Vine.
In God now always felt,
All eternity is mine.

…and yours
