The cosmos seems to move mechanically,
and all around us follows physics laws,
without a thought and automatically,
an unintended process as its cause.
And even life forms often look controlled
by laws of nature pulling as with strings,
so that they seem to have a stranglehold
not just on matter but on living things.
But there exists in us a constant tension
between what laws of nature have decreed
and what we want to do with good intention
in following the Love that is our creed.
The laws of physics may not be repealed,
but may we serve that Love – in Christ revealed.
