Word from our communion service on Sunday evening. It is the last one of the season. In the chapel at 6.30 round a long table.

Do not think

there is a source of God

that wells up

with love and light

or that somewhere

in some single moment

God begins

bread is broken

or wine is poured

for there is not

this table

solid to the touch

is but the quantum

of what is forever

or this bread

a single physical echo

of what is eternal

or this cup

a tangible thirst

of what is sourceless

love’s edges

incarnate as bread

where it touches the world

enfleshing a ghost

into bodily form

but really

there is nothing here

only the manifestation of eternity

of what is undying

Do not think beginnings or endings

Nothing begins or ends here

this is forever
