Words on Word



WORD

Not the words, symbols, and mental images that we have codified and entrapped in a black leather binding that we anoint as THE sacred Word of God.

Not the Word of God, but the WORD, God.
The WORD before words before Word.
The creating WORD of breath and life.
The life-giving WORD of living Light:
     Light for Creation;
     Light for Humanity;
     Light for the Darkness.

A man, wild and unworldly, came telling us about a dawning Light that he could see over the horizon. An enlightening Light was near us.

He was in the World - through him, the World was; but the World knew not the WORD!

Through him, we were, but we did not know the WORD! Some accepted him, but most did not. Some believed that as a name is an attributing word, then God is WORD.

We are Children of the Light,
Born not from the lust of the Flesh,
But born by the will of the Lord.
And the WORD became Flesh,
Born not from the lust of the Flesh,
But born by the will of the Lord.
And we have seen the Light in him;
WORD of grace and Light of Truth.
