The Lord said to Moses, ‘I am going to come to you in a dense cloud, so that the people will hear me speaking with you and will always put their trust in you.’  Psalm Exodus 19:9

The vocabulary that we even use for the sacred is so inadequate…God is so beyond the human vocabulary. But yet, God can be—not known, but maybe the unknown knowable or knowable unknown…it’s just like scooping a teaspoon of water out of an ocean and saying, ‘Oh, I’ve got it all.’  No, you’ve got a few molecules. You can do some study. You can understand a little bit. But the mysteries are too vast. But in that spoon of the little water, you can come to know something on your journey that will assist you. And that, [is where] the wildness of God fits so beautifully. —Otis Moss III, The Sound of the Genuine, from On Being with Krista Tippett

Let us linger in your wildness O God, in the beauty of not knowing, in the unknown knowable sacred presence that awaits us despite our not-knowing. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
