If you talk to me of God…
…Please offer me more than a rulebook, theories and ideas, vague promises of a greater understanding later on. I need something that has meaning in my here and now
If you talk to me of Gods son…
…Please offer …me more than a newborn in a manger, or a teller of tales, gentle bearded hippy with a considerable fondness for children and a greater capacity for being misunderstood. I need someone who has meaning in my here and now.
If you talk to me of Gods spirit…
…Please offer me more than a hovering dove, beautifully pictured in stained glass, stained glass has not much day to day usefulness.
What I need is a friend who will come alongside me, love that will never let me down, and a leader I can follow with confidence to the ends of the earth.
If you talk to me of that God.
Then
I will listen.
