There are some things which just have to be said. We have to speak out because at the heart of the Christian message is our belief that God is not silent. God has spoken through creation itself and the evolving universe; through the human story; through the dwelling of Jesus Christ in time; through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the Church and in each believer; through the inspiration of the scriptures; and through the wisdom and the teaching of the Church through the ages.
We use words all the time. Words of welcome. Words of wisdom. Words of warmth. Words of warning. Words of wistfulness. Our words are wasted if words are just words. In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God. And the Word was God. Through him all things came to be, not one thing had its being but through him. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. The Word made things happen.
As Christians, as followers of the Word, we do something about what we have heard. Our own best words are our actions.
