THURSDAY, March 14

Psalm 46:5 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.

One of my treasures hangs on our living room wall. On this canvas painted by my uncle is a large red rock amid other rocks in a fast-flowing stream. He captured the light and power of the rapids beautifully. When I read this verse, I picture Uncle Joe’s painting.

On the last day of General Convention in 2003, after listening to so much heated and painful disagreement, I decided I needed to walk down to the Mississippi River. Standing by this mighty stream, I felt the tension of division drain away, carried away on the face of the moving, living water. God’s river was moving on and carrying us with it.

MOVING FORWARD: Water is a powerful image in the Bible. How does it impact your own personal theology?
