talk by Trevor 16/10

Trevor kindly offered to give a talk this Sunday. The title for the talk next Sunday was -‘The real thing: truth, a transforming thing’. The Scripture passages are the set lectionary readings for the day: Exodus 33:12-23 and Matthew 22:15-22. Trevor  explored how God engages with us as the Truth, how God as truth or truth as God is not just an intellectual thing it is more a living thing, an interacting thing, a transforming thing. How we relate with, live with God as Truth. ‘Truth as transformation’ or ‘Transforming truth’.

(excerpt)
It doesn’t interest me if there is one God
or many gods.
I want to know if you belong or feel
abandoned,
if you can know despair or see it in others.
I want to know
if you are prepared to live in the world
with its harsh need
to change you. If you can look back
with firm eyes,
saying this is where I stand. 
– from Fire in the Earth and River Flow: New & Selected
