Wherever the river goes
Ezekiel 47: 9
9 Wherever the river goes, every living creature that swarms will live, and there will be very many fish, once these waters reach there. It will become fresh; and everything will live where the river goes.
I was recently invited to participate in a blessing of the River Don for the local Angling Association. I learned a good bit about local fish and other river creatures while preparing. Rivers are extraordinary things. Arteries of life which connect land and sea. No wonder they make such a good metaphor.
In the frozen heights the melt begins
What was fixed, stony, harsh,
begins to loosen, to shimmer, to flow.
Unfreeze our hearts, Lord
Fill us with your life-giving,
That we might feel
the transformation all around us,
the transformation within us,
as the freshness of the Spirit washes all our debris away.
