the veil transformed

“Break down in me the barricades of death / And tear the veil in two with your last breath.” ~from Malcolm Guite’s poem, Cleansing the Temple, https://malcolmguite.wordpress.com/2017/04/11/holy-week-tuesday-cleansing-the-temple-4/

I am fascinated by the concept of the veil, that thing that separates, being torn and revealing… I don’t know… the Christ mystery (?) that holds all things together in a different (unimaginable?) way.

And further, somehow Malcolm’s words “with your last breath” cause me to wonder about breath pointing us toward the practice of tearing the veil ~ not only “last” as in “final”… also last as in previous, the breath that just happened without any fanfare.

 

resurrection edges

There’s an upcoming conference entitled ‘Reimagining Our Spirituality from the Edges,’ for which I’ll be creating a large backdrop, table centerpiece elements, and worship pieces.  In the hope of stirring up some artistic vision, I’ll be journaling and blogging with the theme of edges over the next few days.  If you have anything that you think might help me out, feel free to send it my way!

rise up, JOY!

I would love your opinion, if you’re a frequent or occasional visitor to my blog, or if you subscribe to it. Something changed in WordPress a few weeks ago and I can no longer offer pictures that can be expanded when you click on them. As far as I know, I can offer two sizes: a small size in which the whole image can be seen on a screen OR a bigger size that does not fit on one screen.

Today’s blog post features the small size.  Two days ago, the post (our turn in the light) featured the big size. Which do you prefer?
