Wilderness

Wilderness

Psalm 78

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

Come, eat

The Bread is Broken for you.

The Rev. Ann Fontaine is a retired priest who lives on the coast of Oregon. She is the author of Streams of Mercy: a meditative commentary on the Bible.

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.
