Cosmic connection: quiet little fog, caring raven small bird songs.
Question of the Day: Wondered how faith began?
There was a raising up of a serpent on a staff, growing to be the symbol now of medicine,
To look upon the serpent and believe was to bring about healing,
We have sinned by complaining ‘pray the Lord;’ to take away the serpents revealing,
Every one who looks at the raised serpent lived.
In more modern times we pray the kenotic Philippians hymn.
What Jesus Christ did we too are called to follow in his way,
Then we too will be raise up with him into heaven like the cawing soaring jay
Pointing out Jesus on the cross the one exalted is our singular person to follow anything but grim.
The Gospel today encourages us to take a big leap,
And simply Believe.
I saw it on a coffee cup today how simple to take mercy’s reprieve.
Then we can all relax and get our beauty sleep.
“We adore you I Christ,
And bless you
You are the redeemer of the world.”
