God split open the sea and let them pass through; *
making the waters stand up like walls. Psalm 78:13
Walls of chaos
Hover beside the Way
They railed against God and said, *
“Can God set a table in the wilderness? Psalm 78:19 (BCP)
In deserts of loneliness
In wastelands of isolation
In rages of anger
In silence of apathy
The Bread is Broken for you.
