Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


The Creator

Frank's photo of fall foliage
Infinite and wise is God,
The God who does not reveal
The mysteries of his little insects,
And his minutest creations
That our eyes cannot see.

Wise and infinite is the God
who does not reveal
The mysteries of his worlds and constellations,
And his greatest creations
That our imaginations cannot grasp.

And because we cannot see,
Because we cannot understand,
Because we cannot grasp
All his mysteries,
We can but marvel,
And muse,
And humbly bow to worship Him.
—W. Leslie Richards,
Cerddi’r Cyfnos, Gwasg Gee, 1986

For those of with our hands still raised in the Sunday School class wanting to ask questions just the same, our Questioning Your Faith series will look at the question "Can other religions be true too?" tomorrow evening (Wednesday) at 7 p.m. at King of Peace. And for those who want to worship, the study will follow the 6:15 p.m. worship service as it does each week.
