…Creatures carry darkness within them.
Egg and womb encase her liquid being – source of life.
Newly birthed, we grope to find her once again -
blanket, pouch and breast bury us in her comfort.
In sleep she enfolds us and we come to know her as the matrix of our dreams
Divinity delights in her; mystery calls her “mater”.
Angels seek her so we mortal folk can know their presence,
for without her there can be no celestial light...

Scripture for Today
May the God of endurance and encouragement
grant you to think in harmony with one another,
in keeping with Christ Jesus…
To think in harmony with one another. Not to think alike, but to sing our several parts so that a harmonious sound is produced. To cooperate in making it so. Why is that so hard to do? Why does it take endurance and encouragement?
I think it takes those things when we forget that we are parts of a choir directed by God, not a star soloist singing for adulation and attention. We need encouragement from each other to remember this, endurance to stay in there when such reminders are hard to hear. Keeping with Christ Jesus means we’re not the center of the universe, but that we’re singing his works, as we’re created to do.
