Editor's Foreword
And then you - Facing God
And then you
At the dawn
You live at the hinge
Stunned by the morning
We wait for you to ache
You ... and therefore us
A thousand, a million, a trillion tongues
For how you hope
We say "Yes, yes"
You with ears bent close to our lips
The other side of the street
Not at our beck and call
You sweep away what we treasure
No more sinking sand
Before the day is out
Three times holy
The place where you are curbed
Our true home
A people with many secrets - Truth-telling confession
A people with many secrets
Like an endless falling
We treasure what you end
Not always for you
You who command
We also live double lives
An answering and refusing
Yours, and not ours
We are takers
Fashioning better guarantees
The God we would rather have
But now you know
Even on such a day
Against your absence - A hidden God
Against your absence
Our despairing hope
No newness yet
You are known in hiddenness
You stay hidden within that misery
With or without you
Against a closed sky
We are ready to listen - For illumination
We are ready to listen
Your command is garbled
Ears but do not hear
We would know more of you
The voice we can scarcely hear
The din undoes us
The grace to be haunted
Give us Saturday ears
Reach us
That we may change
Re-text us
Move off the page - While reading texts
Move off the page
Before us
We try, as best we can, to live by bread alone
You turn tables
Teach us how to weep
Your world-forming speech
Your word
Our mother tongue
How you inhabit this text
Your new news
After the bitterness
When the world spins crazy
The poems conflict us
Soak our lives in it
Alabaster cities
We are children of another world
Awed to heaven, rooted in earth - For the church in mission
Awed to heaven, rooted in earth
Not the God we would have chosen
Re-brand us
And we are different
A hard, deep call to obedience
We do not want to be arrested
Do not fear
Give us appropriate yielding
We are much drawn to circuses
Our right names
Be our primary disease
The anguish and burden of the message
With all the graciousness we can muster
Deliver us from amnesia
Demanding all, not too much, but all
Kingdoms rage ... and we are called
Move us beyond ourselves
Start again - For a bruised world
Start again
The threats do not wane
Their plowshares are beat into swords
Reform our deformed lives
Work your wonders
In the midst of all the pushing and shoving
Come to our shut down places
We are all in hock
While the world says "not possible"
We are not self-starters
Be your powerful, active, sovereign self
Friday is your day of entry
Into our several hells
Is there a balm ... in Gilead or anywhere?
Ours is a seduced world
Ceding our end to you
We will not keep silent - Cadences of gratitude
We will not keep silent
You give ... and we receive
The God who yearns and waits for us
The gratitude we intend
We are second and you are first
With you it is never "more or less"
Giver, Giver, Giver
Larger than fear
We notice your giving
