As the Snow Falls

The man speaks,

and the snow falls

covering, quieting.

We are smaller now

than when we began.

Measurements and assessments

of eternity

as the snow falls.

Can I know

for myself?

Or for those I hope

to lead and teach?

How much is needed

to have and keep?

I fear what falls away,

as the snow falls.

I want to know

whate’er I can,

whatever revelation bears

or allows,

that I might hope in certainty,

and wield truth as power.

What else is sure,

as the snow falls?

Letters, if nothing else,

two strokes or three

for certainty.

Here at last

I can be sure;

I can measure myself,

and you can see,

as the snow falls.

Fearful thoughts,

warmth of life and fear-

if the veil is torn

I am blind,

too weak to wait and watch.

The danger of mystery,

the fire in the cloud!

as the snow falls

Grey, all grey,

the sky admits no clarity.

But peace settles,

a million hands on shoulders

and heads, “Be still,

be quiet, be covered.

You may be certain of grace,

as the snow falls.”

The Surprising Grace Of God’s Judgement

We are judgmental creatures, and that is a great cause of conflict and division in this world. Christianity offers a unique solution to this universal human problem through God’s surprising judgement of humanity.

The Fount of All Fathers

More than ever before, there is science to back up what good poets and authors have always known: the world is hungry for the love of their fathers. But even before the poet, it’s the Bible that lets us know there is a father hunger in this world.

Redefining The People Of God

There is an inside and outside to the people of God, and we’re going to be surprised at how those lines are drawn.
