Passages: The Book of Job

I know you can do all things 578px-Job's_Evil_Dreams-butts
and nothing you wish is impossible.

Who is this whose ignorant words
cover my design with darkness?

I have spoken of the unspeakable
and tried to grasp the infinite.

Listen and I will speak;
I will question you
: please, instruct me.

I had heard of you with my ears;
but now my eyes have seen you.

Therefore I will be quiet,
comforted that I am dust

Second Saturday Speaker’s Platform | President Greg Salyer | Making Meaning in 2017


It is an unprecedented time in American and world history. Democratic institutions are threatened and appear to be waning while the problems they were created to address are worse than ever. Ennui and angst are prominent if not dominant, and it seems that our social interactions are increasingly poisonous. The public sphere has become a mutual shouting match, and our politics are locked into the same intransigent and vituperative rhetoric. As W.B. Yeats put it, “The best lack all conviction, while the worst/Are full of passionate intensity.” He would go on to say that some revelation must be at hand. Is it? Do we need a revelation, a new vision? If so, what might it look like? What do the ancient wisdom teachers have to say about all of this? How do we make meaning in 2017 and beyond?
