Poet as prophet …

… An Awkward Sod for God | An Assessment of R.S. Thomas on the 13th Anniversary of His Death | Doubt & Belief. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

He speaks as a poet-prophet between two groups eager to be rid of him as a turbulent poet-priest. On the one side are unbelievers who refuse to hear him because he believes in God; on the other are believers who refuse to hear him because he often expresses doubts about God.
I think many people fail to realize that the life of faith is not without its lovers' quarrels.
