What is Truth?… Amen


It is so. So be it. Assent. Truth.

In this sanctuary, offering prayers, reciting creeds, listening and responding, to words which make no demands of me. They are simply true. No doubt.  At the end, we agree. God and me.

I say Amen. 

It is so. So be it. Assent. Truth.

This is truth of the boldest kind. Not proof. Not fact. Not even wisdom. This Amen is spoken between us, between God and me, words of agreement. Words we say together, in unison.

It is so. So be it. Assent.

What is truth?

If it is nothing else, it is this. What you say when you know God is watching. Listening. Demanding nothing. Accepting everything. Including you.

Life comes at you fast. I like to catch it and toss it back. Or toss it up to see where it lands. I do my best thinking when I'm moving. And my best writing when I am tapping my foot to a beat no one else hears. Kinesthetic to the core.
