I Often Wonder – Where is God? 

I Often Wonder – Where is God? 


I often wonder – where is God? 

As we gather at the table

with the crunch of carrots and requests for dessert

the relentless question: “Can I play please?” 


I often wonder – where is God? 

As tiny hands clutch crayons

tracks move across a construction site

the persistent plea: “We’re still playing.” 


I often wonder – where is God? 

As we race down the hallway

rock together under the hush of the noise machine

the insistent refrain: “I’m not ready for bed yet.” 


I often wonder – where is God? 

As I turn on the computer

fill a page with words and stories

the endless question: “Will these words matter?” 


I often wonder – where is God?

As the wind blows my hair

the birds provide music to break my silence

as I listen to God’s persistent voice: “I am here. You are mine.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
