What Large Stones

You can build a whole idea, a whole system of logic

Based on stories you’ve been told.

A whole theology.

A whole religion.

An idea about a person.

A frame of reference, an ethic, an understanding between people.

A system.

 

But remove one stone—

One misstep, mistake, misunderstanding,

One misleading piece–a lie, a half-truth, something left out…

And the whole thing comes down.

How many temples do we rebuild?
