saying the un-sayable
We can only say "God is good" if we bear the fundamental realization that what we are saying is actually un-sayable but only accessible through experience. You can only say that which you've been shown if you say it with your guts, if you can bear the weight of its reality somewhere in your memory. Perhaps that's why the Eucharist is an act of remembrance. Not so that we can look merely upon the past, but so that we can make claim upon the present and the future with the banner hope. In remembrance of Christ, we can say "there is no male or female, slave or free, Jew or Gentile, citizen or immigrant, for we are one in Christ," with the weight of that reality resting behind our lips.
