A SUBLIME EXCHANGE


Altar of Shiloh

INKLING FOR

Crazy as this world encroaches on the human spirit, we are reminded to “Be still, and know that I am God.”  Psalm 46:10

I come to the altar with humble vessels

a mix of fear, hope, sorrow and joy

so goodly is life and — dare be your bride.

French spiritual author, Father Jean d’Elbee (+1982) gave retreats saying:  “Jesus takes our sins upon himself and we make his merits our own.”  At that, a retreatant replied, “My sins on him, his blood on me.”
