now born anew

Our God,
You come into his-story and her-story, our-stories,
and in the oh so very particulars of time and space,
You reveal Self and make Yourself known.

Now, we believe Your Self to be consistent,
but realize that the oh so very different oh so very particulars
in which You are revealed and known
shape and color not just how we see You,
but actually what we see … what we come to know.

We do know it’s not a different You revealed,
but different insights into You,
but it gets very complicated when we start applying
or, You forbid, imposing,
what we learn of You in these particulars
to and on those.

So, we try to remember,
that as much as we remember of You
from the old stories,
and as much as we remember of You
from our own old particulars,
You come always to be born anew
into the new particulars of now
and we will find You and know You
again
and again
in the ever unfolding …
amen.
