"It must only look
like leaving. There’s an art
to everything. Even
turning away. How

eventually even hunger
can become a space
to live in. How they made
out of shamelessness something
beautiful, for as long as they could.

from "Civilization,"
by Carl Phillips

Does this mean that all we have is a cruel choice between a stern, choosy, punishing transcendent God-Father-Sky who, in addition, is universally valid and demands undivided faith, but does see much chance for peace in this world; and a soft God (even Gods)-as-substance permeating us all, but only for one particular group? No, it all depends on what we emphasize in our experience of/with God. It is all for us to create, to construct. Religion has not been revealed once and for all.

It is for us to emphasize and create ideologies that are both soft, uniting, peaceful, world-encompassing, yet pluralist.”

Johan Galtung,
