"Affairs are now soul-size"

This is so awesome, I had to share it. This so articulates that all of life is sacred, and why this is a sacred time in earth's history and humanity's history. Our church has some theological differences from the views expressed and implied, but nonetheless we find this uplifting, energizing, and inspiring:

“A SLEEP OF PRISONERS”, from the play with that title, by Christopher Fry, 1951

“The human heart can go to the lengths of God.
Dark and cold we may be, but this
Is no winter now. The frozen misery
Of centuries breaks, cracks, begins to move;
The thunder is the thunder of the floes.
The thaw, the flood, the upstart Spring.
Thank God our time is now when wrong
Comes up to face us everywhere,
Never to leave us ‘til we take
The longest stride of soul men ever took.
Affairs are now soul size.
The enterprise is exploration into God.
Where are you making for? It takes
So many thousand years to wake,
But will you wake for pity’s sake?”
