Former editor of Poetry magazine Christian Wiman struggles, like many of us, to make sense of suffering and faith. His struggle is poetic:
God goes belonging to every riven thing.
He’s made the things that bring him near,
made the mind that makes him go.
A part of what man knows,
apart from what man knows,
God goes belonging to every riven thing he’s made.
In the following interview with Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, Wiman discusses his faith journey, his poetry and finding Christ in suffering.
