Notes about Theology as a failed Poem, by Peter Menkin
by Peter Menkin
11/08/2009 / Poetry
By Peter Menkin
Theology as a means of refining
faith is the ticket
Rowan William's offers.
So this offering, a response,
to the Trinitarian reflections on
"The Grammar of God."
Heady stuff, meant for the heart and life,
phenomenon of human history.
Jesus brings us to an encompassing knowledge
of new, refreshed, evergiving love in a life
emulated by Christians- the event of Jesus
a man named Panikkar says.
These concepts, written
to give fertile ground to inner life
calls us to consider belief in Church,
that institution of mythical cosmology.
Words that sounds celestial,
large, god reaching.
The theologian has the task
to help us know this God.
There is too the attitude
that hopeful enterprise
of the "general human future"
-Are these too lofty for one,
so grand to soar and enjoy some understandings
in dialogue with large thinkers.
The "Christic" vision.
See how many times
quote marks appear.
Copying from the book, "On Christian Theology",
this commentary praises
the recognition of Trinity in history,
"to catch a glimpse."
Audio reading by the poet is here:
