Reframing "Adam and Eve"

So much is lost

in our English translations.

The hurt feelings and damaged souls of our generation,

Cloud our eyes to the poetics of our founding story.


For “Adam” was made from “Adamah”

That being, “Humanity” was made from “The dirt”.


The relationship between

Man and Woman,

For “Isha” was named before “Ish”

That being,

While man may have indeed came first,

All is not lost

Do not be fooled

Do not turn away

You have been given a sign that cannot be denied

Out of grace, you have not been abandoned.


God is still good

God is still the loving Father


The ones who end in hell

Choose that for themselves

by being stubborn

by being deceitful

by being arrogant

by being spiteful


The age of the Gentiles is not over with the rapt...

Next of Kin

A kinship with the creator God?

what nonsense is this?

He who speaks and the stars form, wants me?

Be rid of me, let me be.

For who am I to offer anything?


And who am I, the one who desires nothing?

and yet all the pleasures to be had in the meantime?

but when?

My soul yearns for you.

Yet my heart is so weary, my flesh desires rest.

to immerse myself in your words seems so cumbersome,

and my addictions weigh on me so...

A psalm of my own

O, God, my God

So close to my heart

Yet so far away.

I have been blessed

Aware of the story you are.


All around us

Connecting the shadows

Into their vast array.


O, God, my Jesus

How faithful and beloved

How I long for the

Day and the hour.

I pray you guide me here.

My shepherd. I am lost.

I do not feel safe in my own

Flesh. Sacrificed, ...
