I am in desperate need of a renaissance... a woed that means "Rebirth" from the french "ri" meaning "again" and "nascere" meaning Birth.
This need for something new from the ashes of the old is why I am glad it is Easter. My poetry is flat, my preaching is flat, my days are long... I need the light of the resurrection to shine forth in my life. I was reading through my earlier blog posts and I have to face facts... something has been lost. Something is diminished and missing. Something important has been covered over.
And so I ask... that this Easter would be a renaissance... a rebirth, a new imagining... Lord grant me these things that I may better praise you... to reach higher... to life my head into the heavens, my pen into the cosmos and my heart into heaven itself. AMEN.
