Fragments of Your Ancient Name

Those are words taken from a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke, and are the title of Joyce Rupp’s latest book, a book that draws on a rich variety of faith traditions to provide meditations on God’s names for every day of the year. One of the hardest things for us to wrap our minds around seems to be this idea of a God of multiple names—a God who isn’t God, but an unnamable Beingness. It is always so interesting to think that we’ve got God in a box when we encapsulate its character in a connotation that seems to fit us more than anything else. But here Rupp has given us a language for the name itself—if only in tiny fragments—that put us in touch with the deeper aspects of ourselves and that ultimate Beingness. With the open heart of a mystic we come to this show wanting more than that empty box someone else gave us many years ago. Don’t miss this opportunity for deeper enlightenment.
