"God so loved the world"

     How should we call you, God; You, who are imponderable by our minds?  Although we do have an idea of Your greatness and at the same time of our helplessness, Your immensity and our insignificance, Your holiness and our sinfulness.
     But when we call You: Father, Lord, or Creator, we tend to see You too much as our earthly father, lord or creator.  One can call You only: Love, Truth, Wisdom, Peace or Silence - because that's what You are.  The more so because this form urges us to understand that to be near You we have to strive for love , truth, wisdom, peace and silence.  Only then can you truly live within us.
