I went looking for God

I went looking for the God I once knew
I went into the church
Looked in the pews and on the Table
Looked by the Font and in the pastor’s office
God couldn’t be found.

I went looking for the God I once knew
I wandered the side streets
And the country lanes
And God was everywhere

The Side Streets

The astute will notice that some of the street and place names are an allusion to something else; perhaps, a song, film or a real place.

Theology is becoming less & less important to me, sometimes even distracting. Still, I like a good brew now and then. So, now and then I post to the site.
