Mystery

God of life
How does it really work
This business of conception
Moving from thought to act to new life?

How do you define it?
When is it you, when is it us?
When is it your plan vs your mysterious permission?

Let’s be frank–we don’t ask, we do
And we hope.

Or we are done to and live with consequences far greater than our ability to make lemonade;
Sugar is in short supply

If our attempts to clarify are getting in your way
pull rank.

 

My denomination has been discussing abortion lately, tweaking a global statement on it. I’ve grown tired of folks claiming to know when life begins and what others should do or not do about it. These are some gut reactions to it all.
