Lenten Inspiration.

Week of March 23, 2014
3rd Sunday 

Psalm 95
95:1 O come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
95:2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
95:3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
95:4 In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.
95:5 The sea is his, for he made it, and the dry land, which his hands have formed.
95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!
95:7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would listen to his voice!

The Birthday by René Magritte (1959) is a great painting of a rock.
It fills a room. I had the honor of presenting this piece as a docent at the Frist years ago. It's always stayed with me. 
May the Rock of our salvation FILL up our space.
We like to paint on rocks, tap them together to make a joyful noise! But here's a new idea, heating up rocks in the oven and letting crayons melt on them. Wow!
