The Transcendent Mystery of the Word

Once one transitions out of an anthropomorphic view of the divine, it may seem like there's nothing left to believe in.  If God is neither Father nor Son, then how is the Evolved Baptist to proceed?

We proceed now to the mysteries of accidents and the Holy Spirit and the immanent nature of the Word.  It's a form of the miracle of transubstantiation.  The Word becomes flesh, all right--but in a miraculous manner that doesn't reify as the second coming of Jesus in the flesh, but rather in the pervasion of God in a primordial image as poet--as the Maker.

It's too late to work through this tonight--this came as an epiphany that woke me from a deep sleep.  I'll return to my bed, rest, and come back when I have the time to write through this.  The basics are here for a new cosmological coexistence between the realms of scientific awe and wonder at an infinitely complex universe and the human need for a comfortable metanarrative of familiar mythoi.

The answer is waiting within an extended examination of the LOGOS.
