O God, Is That You?

During the seasons of Lent and Easter our church is going through the basics of Christian belief in the Apostles’ Creed. Each week we are reflecting on a different line from the creed and during the week we are reflecting on various scriptures that speak to the theme. Every Wednesday there is a psalm and an invitation to rewrite it in our own words.

This week we considered “He descended to the dead.” This week’s psalm is Psalm 139, a psalm that describes the pervasive presence of God. Here is my own poem, inspired by the psalm:

O God, is that you?
Does the Lord of life descend to the dead?
Does the Light of the world dwell in darkness?
What are you doing here?

Darkness is not dark to you.
Death is now a door to life everlasting.
You are here and
Hades is harrowed for harvest.
