Remembering Paul Tillich

Photo0609_001_001 2

Paul Tillich gave our spirit proper place.
He showed us courage as a  space to dwell.
He wrote for us and left us with   his  grace
With his hope, he might both speak and tell.

So many people ignored Fascist speech
And lived with minds cut off from  their own soul
With pen in hand, he wrote, inspired to reach
And touch us as we work towards the whole.

Expelled from his own country, he wrote on
Continuing during  tortuous war long years
He lived, he loved, he wrote, he died and then
His books continue to dispatch our fears.

Though many folk have lived and have destroyed.
Paul Tillich showed  us how to face the  void
