In Error

It grieves me to hear
men in the afternoon
of life wrangling like
its the morning.
There are sixty year
old men still booming
over the inerrancy of
scripture instead of
growing quieter and
quieter, learning the 
verses of bird song.

    Growing quieter. Shrinking. Less of us, more of Him. When will we learn?
    Beautiful and sad.

  7. Amen. And growing “in” the quiet.
