Through the dry desert, a river.
Through the yawning grief, perfume.
Through the war-torn streets, laughter.
Through the fallow season, a harvest.
Through the dense fog, a sunbeam.
Through the howls of night, peace.
Through the wilderness, new ways.
God have mercy,
may it be so.
on Isaiah 43:19
The Rev. Rachel G. Hackenberg‘s book with co-author Martha Spong, Denial Is My Spiritual Practice (and Other Failures of Faith), searches for faith through life’s trials. Rachel has also written Writing to God, a popular Lenten devotional, and other books.
