Creative Author and Creative Readers Reflect on our Creator God

Bible Poems video: https://youtu.be/_ZQ7ol9Z1nM

As a publisher I love to bring authors and readers together, and especially I love it when they are reflecting together on God’s truth, creation, and the life of faith. In this way, writing—and reading—a book of poetry can lead to worship expressed in words, art and action.

The Wounds and the Promise

LIVING WOUNDS

Christ’s wounds—
holes, gaps, gashes?—
remain, continue there,
healed; no pain or festering.
But they remain
places on the body
of the God-Man,
remembering.
A mystery!
There,
in the wounded place
we are part of Christ.
The nails are gone,
the sword withdrawn,
the thorns pulled out.
But these wounds live,
efficacious.
When His followers also
stand gashed and riddled,
touching our wounds to His;
bearing scars from
our own sins and
those of others
but festering no more;
together we form
places of healing
in the body of Christ.
