1 The heavens are telling the glory of God;
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours forth speech,
and night to night declares knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words;
their voice is not heard;
4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
Psalm 19: 1-4
The land speaks to us.
Creation comforts, cries out,
and reflects God's glory.
What is the land saying to us today?
I offer this hymn, traditionally of Advent, but of Pentecost too, as a prayer in
the midst of so much pain, anger, grief, and injustice. A prayer of turning.
