Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of my summer schedule, in which I'm serving as a camp pastor on top of my normal duties, I'll be putting my ongoing Thursday and Friday series on hold until mid-August. All other days will continue to feature new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.

Author of Unending Time

(Note: This poem was featured in the January 2017 edition of Ancient Paths Literary Magazine)

O Gracious, Glorious, and Sublime,
Thou Author of unending time,
     Who wrote the journey of our hearts
     From inkwells forged in deaths of stars,
          Take up Thy pen, and write again:
          A scene of peace and discipline
     For players learning lines and parts
     While struggling 'gainst their helpless hearts;
Be Thou their wordsmith and their rhyme,
Thou Author of unending time.
