April Poem from Rev. Peter

This year, instead of writing a newsletter "column" each month, Rev. Peter is offering up an original poem that is linked to our monthly spiritual theme. The spiritual theme for April is "Creation".


“Ex Spe”

You can stand on the stage,
the most skilled illusionist,
madly conjuring card after
card from thin air, or
producing doves like some
crazed, relentless peacemaker,
astounding even the most
jaded, jeering crowd.

But in the end Lucretius was right:
Given seven days, or seventy,
or even seven thousand,
you cannot create out of nothing
even a single grain of sand,
much less an entire Universe.
Ex nihilo nihil fit.*
