Under the Sign of Thomas
Under the sign of Thomas
we live—we doubters—
we wonderers—we wanderers—
of human and inhuman
and facile suppositions.
We must put
our heads as well as our fingers
at the point where facts
puncture the flesh
and measure how far
love can unsafely go.
From “Invisible Harvest,” by the Reverend Thomas John Carlisle, 1987
Grace Congregational Church members and friends have contributed to this year’s Lenten devotionals. This year’s Lenten theme is “Good enough: Embracing the imperfections of life and faith.” Today’s devotional was offered by Ellen Green who knew the author.
