How You Say a Thing

Greg Clarke was in Hobart last week just prior to the Da Vinci Code film release, delivering a lecture related to his book, Is it Worth Believing? In chapter 2 he says “Sorry…for not presenting the truth as we understand it in an exciting, attractive and believable way.” A further thought:

How You Say a Thing

A treasure in truth
Told so cold
It is not heard,
Lies tragic
Like the fabled beauty
In the tower
Unseen and never claimed.

Do I break the commandment,
Bearing false witness,
When I do not tell,
(With something like the art,
The heart,
The storyteller Christ
Can show),
The truth I know?
