The Pharisees Are Not Dead

Written by , Posted in faith, poetry

“Your very adamant message
Is grace, grace, grace.”
I take it as a compliment
Of the highest order,
“If I’m to err, I pray it will be
On the side of adamant grace.”

The study has seemed pretty easy,
All of us scholars,
Seeking Theo through logos.
The commentators say,
“The Pharisees are not dead.”
And I think,
“Sure– I see them all around,
Preaching doctrine,
Teaching standards,
Guarding long-held ways.”

    Made me think of a lot of Richard Rohr’s writings on the stages of life.

    I read the whole thing on A Deeper Story. Very nice, thanks for posting!

    P.S. It’s also very awesome to see someone else in the world with an English degree. I felt alone for a second there 😉
