Changing Church: Rev. Shawna R.B. Atteberry, “In the Beginning”

Rev. Shawna R.B. Atteberry

 In the Beginning
by Rev. Shawna R.B. Atteberry

Sophia

In the beginning there was
 
Silence
Chaos
Deep
 
In the beginning there was
 
Blackness
Void
Nothing
 
In the beginning
 
The Spirit brooded
Godde spoke
And Wisdom cheered
 
In the beginning was Godde
And Wisdom was with Godde
Before She was rationalized into
 
The Word
 
Before She was reduced to
A Housewife
 
In the beginning was Godde and Wisdom
 
Creating
Cheering
Saying, “It is good.”

 

Both Dame Wisdom (Proverbs 8-9) and the Wise Woman of Proverbs 31 inspired Rev. Atteberry to write this poem, when she was doing research for a sermon on Proverbs 31:10-31.
