So here's to silence!

Just as putting something into words can make it appear more important than it is, exaggerate it. I think putting something into words can also marginalize it, make it smaller than it is. Or it is inexpressible as it is, and any attempt to express it shrinks it, or simply makes it sounds absurd.


But silence also is judged, and so we speak against the emptiness of silence.
Silence holds within it the depths of the heart, its joys as well as its anguish. It can hold the smallest of indifference's (which is fearful to me) just as it holds the deepest thoughts and cares. So here's to silence!

"I believe in you."


When I was hit by full understanding I wept. You have made my heart glad.

Faith.

Faith cannot be against being disappointed, because precisely to conceive disappointment is to lack faith.
Faith and realism do not coexist.
Faith is the fool who dares to decide.
Realism exists in a kind of self-interested indecision. He will put his hand to the plow, but look back (preparing against failure). Realism (itself a kind of mistrust) stakes its life on nothing, and so exists in a kind of abstracted unreality. His life is a perpetual possibility, nothing more.

wonder.
to seek out the world,
be overwhelmed by its beauty
to walk with you in delight
of his land,
to see Christ in it.

I long to question (with you)
and to be overwhelmed by our questionings
Our growing understanding only shows
the multiplicity of Truth and its endless expanse before us.

to move together through ignorance and discovery,
to be worn out by wondering
and rest in wonder.

and all wondering is worshiping.
