The Still Point

Christ - light 3

Art Galleries capture
His life in paintings
Libraries are lined with books
Exploring His thought.
Hospitals and schools
Are dedicated to His memory.

He is focus of controversy,
The rallying point of unity,
The object of love,
The subject of debate,
A basis of hope and the goal of lives.
No man interested in
The meaning of life
And its ultimate question
Can ignore Him.

He towers above
The giants of history.
To some He is an uneasy feeling
In times of silence;
To others He is a sunrise of hope
In a night of darkness.
To all, He is a challenge.

Jesus is the still point in a turning world
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
