Wendell Berry - beyond the Sacred-Secular distinction

Poets at their best say things that need to be said, and get behind our disabling, dysfunctional dualisms.

See Wendell Berry getting beyond the sacred secular distinction:
The incarnate Word is with us
is still speaking, is present
always, yet leaves no sign
but everything that is

(Sabbath 1999, IX in Given: New Poems, Counterpoint, 2005, p.78)
