Michael Frost posted this prayer by .E Stanley Jones today on facebook. I think it fits well with my posts about language being fallible, especially with the ones that aren’t finished yet probably… E. Stanley Jones has done very interesting things in India in the 20th century, so if you have the chance to read anything by him, do it! (I think ‘Christ of the Indian road is a recommendation, even if I’ve only I’ve read it in weird old-fashioned Dutch…. The English version is probably much more interesting…)
I know that Thou art greater than all our descriptions of Thee.
When we have said all, then we stand in mute adoration
before the wonder of Thee – the Inexpressible.
But I see enough of Thee to love Thee
and to give my heart to Thee fully.
I do so, and I do so now.
I thank Thee. Amen.”
E. Stanley Jones
