Trinity Sunday

There is a certain attractiveness
to the mystery of God.
It suggests a depth of being
that no ones mind can reach,
an elusive beauty
that largely escapes our clutch.

There is something to revel in
rather that to apologize for
because, paradoxically,
by its very silence,
the mystery of God
communicates something valid.

A deep shadow can be cast
only by a strong light.
God remains untamed by our logic,
unpackaged by our rhetoric.
The full dimensions of God
must remain forever
inconceivable to us,
unguessed at by us.
