As Iron Sharpens Iron

An ongoing and online discussion between: an Orthodox informed Ecumaniac without a denominational home, an ordained Baptist youth pastor with an open mind, a Calvinist worship leader/seminarian with a staggering vocabulary and ability to make a point, and a cradle Catholic with a love/hate relationship to Rome.

The God of the Living

The gravediggers dig graves and are silent.
The Lord opens graves and shouts.
A woman places her daughter in a grave,
the Lord takes her out of the grave.

The Lord is a better mother than the mother.
A man covers his son with soil, the Lord uncovers him.
The Lord is a better father than the father.
A brother buries his brother, the Lord resurrects him.
The Lord is a better brother than the brother.
The Lord has neither tears nor smiles for the dead.
His whole heart belongs to the living ...
If your body is a temple of the Most High God,
Then the One who resurrects is within you,
And your resurrection is already being accomplished.

St Nicholai Velimirovic, Prayers by the Lake
