I’m taking two weeks of an interlude from the regular poetry and sharing a bit of my wrestling with the religion of my birth, Christianity. These poems have been written over a series of years and are not necessarily where I am on my faith walk presently. Nor am I a theologian; if you have theological concerns about these poems, you are probably right. Instead of looking at the rightness or wrongness of the poems, I offer them to you as part of one’s spiritual search, as in a way we are all searching. Perhaps they might speak to you or someone you know; feel free to pass them on. And if you don’t like this changeup, stop back in about two weeks and we’ll pick up with the poetry you came here for.
