The Work of our Hands

The Work of our Hands

My hands – 

reach 

carry 

embrace

fix

clean

cook

drive

push

create

paint 

hug

pick up

feed

write

color

bless. 

 

My hands – 

cling to the One 

who first reached out to me 

declaring all of creation 

good and holy, 

a work of art.

Take some time today to look at your hands. See the work they do. Feel the shape and contours of your hands. Hold them open. Give thanks. And then lift them up to the One who is holding you.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
