In Love Beyond God: Meditations, Adam Lawrence Dyer invites readers to get to know a set of experiences that may be unfamiliar.
As an African American Unitarian Universalist leader and seminarian, Dyer speaks to audiences of people with different perspectives and different needs.
I’ll start with my own location because that is what I know, even though white UU’s need not be the central experience. We who are white in majority-white, justice-seeking congregations have our own work to do with internalized racism and unexamined privilege while simultaneously confronting larger systems of white supremacy and other forms of oppression. We cannot effectively and make positive change in the world without also dismantling our own racist assumptions. Some of that work involves relationship-building and perspective-taking. The poems in Love Beyond God are not “for” white readers tackling our own racism, but Dyer is generous for letting us know that they are available. “Part of the invitation in these pages, therefore, is to ask white people to spiritually invest in learning how to navigate non-whiteness by actually getting to know our experiences.”
Dyer’s audience also includes people of color in UU and other majority-white communities, people who are fully members of congregations and movements and schools and neighborhoods where their experiences may not be acknowledged or honored. He writes that he hopes to “serve as a great comfort to others who have longed to see words like these in print.” He continues:
“Overall, the goal is to keep us all in community and to foster deeper understanding all around.”
The poems cover a range of experiences and settings. Some of them invite poetic perspective-taking from more than one angle within the same piece. They are layered and lyrical, while also being clear in their messages.
Racial Justice and the Black Lives Matter movement are constantly relevant in this day and age. The past few weeks, following the murders of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, these topics have been especially on the minds and hearts of many people in our communities. Dyer’s poems have been comforting and appropriately challenging in these times. The Skinner House Books Tumblr featured his poem, “Healing“, in one of their posts.
Another poem for congregations and activist communities to attend to at the moment is “Do #Black Lives Matter?” In this piece, he looks at some of the larger destructive forces, including blocked access to voting rights, a racist prison-industrial complex, and “the commercial circus.”
One poem relevant to UU leaders is “Adrift In My Faith,” in which Dyer calls forth the talents he has for surviving a hostile ocean. He remembers the ancestors who “manage to lift me above the waves to breathe the sweet sea air.” It is a poem of triumph and hope, even though the journey through treacherous waters continues.
Another poem that UU leaders would benefit from hearing is “Salvation (Fourth Principle).” The poem acknowledges the power and heat of some of the symbols people bring from the religions of their upbringing or their environment. The free and responsible search for meaning in community is easier said than done. Dyer has offered words that call us forward in that search.
Some of the poems are sweet or nostalgic. There is sadness and longing. There is pride. There is beauty and beauty and beauty.
Readers who are unfamiliar with the perspectives and situations in Love Beyond God may need some extra time to process what they are reading. Listen. Sit with it. Find some people who share your identity and who are working for a just, spiritually abundant world to talk with about your response.
Usually, I read books of meditation and poetry with a utilitarian ear. “When might I use this in a worship service?” “When might the people I care for need me to share these words with them?” Love Beyond God forced me to suspend that frame of reference. These words are valuable simply because they are.
