Announcing Life

“Circle Zion, take her measure, count her fortress peaks, gaze long at her sloping bulwark, climb her citadel heights—then you can tell the next generation detail by detail the story of God, our God forever, who guides us till the end of time” (Psalm 48: 12-14, The Message).

Announcing Life

The nooks and crannies

between and around

the Holy City’s

ancient stones

are packed with

soil, sprinkled with

seeds, and watered

by hopeful, eternal

hearts. Once empty

spaces producing

color, and every

crevice announcing,

life,

“Life from the dead.”
