Prayer For Amniocentesis, David McGlynn 2010 Butler University

Prayer For Amniocentesis, David Mcglynn

On Earth As It Is

We have been debating names for weeks, but now we choose one, Hayden, aware it’s a name we might have to bury. I sit on the edge of the bed and think about the vial of amniotic fluid—Katherine’s water—traveling by van to the lab in Milwaukee. I think of its soft amber color, its protective viscosity, its blizzard of DNA, the helix of Hayden’s existence a braid of Katherine’s alleles and mine.


For A Recently Discovered Shipwreck At The Bottom Of Lake Michigan, Matthew Olzmann 2010 Butler University

For A Recently Discovered Shipwreck At The Bottom Of Lake Michigan, Matthew Olzmann

On Earth As It Is

4/2/2010

Dear Shipwreck,

Even though you’re over a century old, they say that everything inside you is still intact. Even the crew? Must be lonely. I’ll write again.


Prayer, Adam Robinson 2010 Butler University

Prayer, Adam Robinson

On Earth As It Is

God,

nothing inspires fear in me like swallowing an apple seed. What if there are worms in the fruit that rises up from my belly? Worms freak me out.

But you know I love trees, God. Your creation is really magnificent.


Decomposing Articles Of Faith, Melissa Pritchard 2010 Butler University

Decomposing Articles Of Faith, Melissa Pritchard

On Earth As It Is

In which Sister Pritchard, Scribbler Pritchard, Goody Pritchard holds forth:

Praise God

That God both does and does not uphold our Neighborhood Watch.

That God both is and is not a projection of our innermost desires and fears.

That God is a handyman, our prayers to Him a honey-do.


"I Never Ask", Matthew Specktor 2010 Butler University

"I Never Ask", Matthew Specktor

On Earth As It Is

What do you want from me? Where should I go? What am I waiting for? What’s your name? What about the other guy? How ‘bout those people I don’t know? Help that ugly girl, the guy who cut me off in traffic, the woman with the bad breath, those Craigslisters, the people who can’t spell. Help the Un-readers, O Lord, the people with Kindles, the Amazon shoppers, those folks who send too many Tweets. Bless the Status Updaters, who bore me, the breakfast-detailers and candid photographers, the ones with the burpy babies, the dying fish, the new puppies, the Ecstatics. …


Secret Oxygen, Kim Thomas 2010 Butler University

Secret Oxygen, Kim Thomas

On Earth As It Is

The firemen access our building invisibly. I thought they would stop coming because you summoned strength against them. I’m sure the firemen have instructions for seizures. Kept in a red tool chest. Explicitly labeled help. I’m sure others, like you, ask them to leave. I understand this fear of judgment, yet it is not enough.


The Miracle: Lullaby For Lost Children, Melanie Rae Thon 2010 Butler University

The Miracle: Lullaby For Lost Children, Melanie Rae Thon

On Earth As It Is

Pink pyrola, trailing daisy—magenta flames of shooting stars, brilliant gold of glacier lilies.

Hush now, beloved.

The hummingbird comes to sip from foxglove and Sweet William, drinks from the hollyhock, opens the snapdragon.

Why are you afraid?


Hello, Brain, It's Me, Ray Vukcevich 2010 Butler University

Hello, Brain, It's Me, Ray Vukcevich

On Earth As It Is

Hello, 90% of my brain which is totally, or at least mostly, inaccessible to consciousness, this is the part of us that thinks of itself as “Ray Vukcevich” although sometimes we suspect that part is really “Henry.” Would people have called him “Hank” if things had developed a little differently? What I’m wondering about today is Time. It's a subject that seems so simple at first but is not at all simple and probably has a lot to do with Everything. I’d like to run it by you. I hope you will have ideas. I hope you will tell me …


Transubstance, Nicole Walker 2010 Butler University

Transubstance, Nicole Walker

On Earth As It Is

The word morph sounds so soft but there is

tugging and there is pulling. The unsticking of legs

from the threads breaks any thoughts of grace.

Culture And Interreligious Understanding According To The Romanian Philosopher Lucian Blaga, Michael S. Jones 2010 Liberty University

Culture And Interreligious Understanding According To The Romanian Philosopher Lucian Blaga, Michael S. Jones

SOR Faculty Publications and Presentations

Culture affects how we interpret our experiences and the way we construct our world. It also affects our ability to communicate with one another. The late Romanian philosopher Lucian Blaga developed a systematic philosophy of culture that explores and explains how culture challenges and at the same time facilitates interideological communication. This article introduces and explains these aspects of Blaga's philosophy and then applies them to the issue of interreligious dialogue. It concludes that Blaga's philosophy of culture promotes a high regard for culture and cultural distinctness and at the same time vindicates, enables, and promotes efforts at interreligious understanding.
