Billy Graham

Billy Graham died today, he was 99.

I remember watching on TV his crusades as a child and then later as a teenager. I watched them with my Gramma and [Great] Aunt Mary. I was captivated by his clear, forceful and resolute preaching. Here was a man boldly proclaiming our need for a Savior and that He is the Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you, Lord, for raising up Billy Graham to proclaim your Gospel to the world! Well done, good and faithful servant.

“Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead,” Graham once wrote. “Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.”

On Man's Quest for Truth

"On Man's Quest for Truth"

an ephemeral thing
a broken vessel
who shall rise
from their waking dream
what tenuous bonds
hold us tight
the familiar masks
a richer truth
a reality hidden
revealed to some
who submit
to the Creator
a terrifying journey
the unknown
most retreat
full of fear
clinging to a structure
laid down
by blind watchmakers
never illuminating the core
on faith step out
plunge into the void
a dark abyss
beyond time and space
beyond reason
behold the One
connections infinite
topological unity
beneath man's dim view
shines a light
brighter than imagination
raging hot
pure energy
pure mind
through the Spirit
one can break
the veil
supreme ignorance
of arrogant man
a part taken as the whole
the altar of science exalted
a false security
a failed ontology
the edifice of fools
a broken epistemology
cloaked in robes of learning
an incomplete cosmology
never gaining truth
but for those few
who wish to see
seek in Him the key
unlock the cosmic rhyme
discover your true nature
and be free finally

-- Zachary Uram (c) 2011
