‘Veritas.’ Latin words on a crest. The motto of an institution of higher learning.
Words on a t-shirt. Memorabilia from many summers ago.
Summers before Dream met Ability (or perhaps she was Reality).
“What is TRUTH?” A ruler asked, more than two thousand years ago.
What is truth?
His words, and hers.
The space between the lines.
The spectator. The critics. The lawyers. The jury. The judge.
(But suppose we only have pieces of it, and can never come to know it fully, do we still have the facts?)
The ruler asked, and rejected the Savior.
But this is not that.
Yet in ignorance, we may err in our own way.
We are not judges. Yet we must make a choice, too.
What will it take to choose Love?
In love, find forgiveness.
In humility, find wisdom.
In unity, find the answer.
In all this, find God at work.
Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (Colossians 3)
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4)
