Interlude

A choice made in Gadara

From the September 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Unperturbed by a “legion” of demons    the Master chose neither to let them alone nor to confine them    temporarily    in some unseen abyss  but in the name of the one I am  to consign them    permanently    to the realm of self-stifling nonentity    for all to witness their final dismissal. Father, help me so to choose neither to ignore evil nor to postpone its confrontation but with Christly authority    to behold its annihilation    through faithful witnessing     to the all-goodness    of the one I am.
