How Shall We Find You?

by Shirley Murray, SoF NZ

How shall we find You,
God who is Holy,
captured by gender, colour and code?
How shall we worship,
God of the Presence,
action and essence, meaning and mode?

How shall we know You,
God who is Wisdom,
argued by scholars, proofed on a page:
How to imagine,
God of creation,
worlds beyond thinking, here on our stage?

How shall we trust You
God in the scriptures,
filtered through lenses biased and blurred:
How to revere You
God of tradition,
cased in our churches, Word bound to word?

How shall we see You
if not in people
knit to your Nature, focused in sight --
angels and artists,
teachers and healers,
heart-and-soul people, children of light:

How shall we love You
if not as human,
loving us wholly, fleshed in our frame,
known in our hunger
known in our meeting
spirit to Spirit, naming our name.
