Jeff Foster

God cannot be anything less than the totality,
than all that is touched,
tasted, heard, smelled, known,
imagined and dreamed,
and whether we dream
of the God of a personal religion
or of God’s non-existence or even death,
God is a word, a metaphor,
for That which gives rise to all of it,
prior to human belief and knowledge and even faith.
Yes, this is so vast that even our faith
is too small to contain it,
and our science cannot touch it,
and yet it is as intimate and obvious and present
as the very next breath…
