What is Truth?… Amen

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.

Amen.
