We don’t have the right words for God
Since we no longer believe in a “God” who’s given up on being God –
We need the right words so that everyone can start believing again –
We’ll also need a few bright new metaphors for “love”
As well as an entirely fresh vocabulary for “God’s Kingdom on Earth.”
The problem with words is that they eventually become “stale”
Expressing past understandings of things
That are now no longer understandable.
Who can believe in a “God” who’s mostly a cliché –
And who many fail to take seriously anymore?
Let’s throw over the old words
And start over
In order to fall in love with God again –
Let the words for “love of God”
Be expressed primarily by sparkling eyes
As if falling in love for the first time!
