I've had a few folks ask me if I'd share the poem I wrote and read at the Annual Congregational Meeting. Here it is!
I was recently inspired to write a poem for each day of creation–(which are written as poems themselves). I will be posting a new entry each day. Today: Genesis 1:14-19.

These are questions, they are not truth claims. This is not a systematized theology or even a sermon. They are questions that I guess I have been pondering over and praying over, pushing on and pushing against, seeing what holds and what doesn't, what's true and what's not.
This poem was inspired by the beauty of a place, by my meditations on my soon-to-be-fatherhood, by my own memories as a kid, and by C.S. Lewis’ great insight that nostalgia “is a desire for something that has never actually appeared in our experience,” a desire that nevertheless points to a longing that exists in each one of us for Something greater.
