What of faith now?

April 13, 2017

 

Some words for tonight now bread and wine have been shared and the garden entered and everything is sealed with the greatest irony in history: a kiss.

 

When all the words have been sung… and the story told and retold… and the city entered… and the tables overturned… and the silver pieces exchanged… and the bread broken… and the wine spilled… and a kiss… left hanging in the garden…

 

it is then that faith comes into play…

 

for faith is what happens when you can’t see the future… when your bones tell you this can’t be all there is… but the world laughs at such optimism…

 

Faith is when the stories have been told and the words used up and wrung out and left to dry…

 

Faith is about what you do then… It is the choice you make… when there is no evidence for the decision you know you are going to take… to carry on following…

 

Faith holds you in the midst of what is unbelievable… Faith calls you when you don’t understand… Faith needs you when there is nothing else to see or believe anymore…

 

It is what is left when everything is broken… and the light splits into shadow… and the lies come…

 

Faith dares wonder… is God finished yet?…
