being. He is eternity, and He is always creating. In the words of
Bernard Shaw, “God is in the making.” In Herbert Wells’ Eternal Fire,
God works in a laboratory that is poorly equipped. He complains that
He has to struggle with unyielding material. This material is evil
itself, which needs to be reduced. If we are intelligent and talented,
we help God to create. In this case, we feel that est deus in nobis
—there is God in ourselves”). In an artist’s imagination, God is not
unwilling to do ordinary jobs. In the artist’s depiction, God,
climbing a ladder and dressed in a work robe, oils the gears to enable
the advance of time on the world’s clock. According to the Bible,
“What is a second to God is a millennium to Man.” The unstoppable
motion of time and the cyclic nature of birth and death are associated
with the sprouting of the new from the ruins of the old. The beating
of the human heart is forever connected To the ticking of the
celestial clock, First wound by the master of the universe To maintain
harmony and perfection in all He created. In the simple robe of a
watchmaker, He moved the hands of the clock To start the new-born
millennium. All the Creator’s children look joyfully To the beginning
of each epoch When the rays of the sun shine like a golden pendulum
Through the haze of time, beyond To the blue firmament of the future.
