Prophetic Endurance

A Walk in the Garden

Man of Sorrows 

The face was not cold, 
like expensive white marble, 
but lonely, 
discomforting with 
a wider, deeper 
acceptance of the north sun:
orange, and 
He hung with hands
outstretched in a cold cathedral,
subdued martyrdom
latent in the echoes
of the ornate gold throne.
Familiar with anguish, 
the tapestry hangs on the wall: 
millions of gilt gold threads 
and singular purity, 
the face of a madonna 
with child.

Go Back


Prophetic Moments

Waiting for Jesus.

Listening to the Holy Spirit.

Urged to act by power not our own.

Worshipful Postures

Hold your hands out.

Keep your candle lit.  

Worship every day.

Pray for others.
