New Day Dawning
KingdomTide 06

The seeds of unbelievable
sleep lightly in the sack
while the fallow ground of reason
lies upturned upon its back

Awakening inconceivable
lightly scatters on the ground
generations germination
subterranean resound

the rains of almost ready now
they linger in the clouds
awaiting final funerals
of the self assuring prouds

Sky's in search of farmers
who will till with humble hand
a kingdom only given
in the soil of earthy land.

The photo was taken of sunrise yesterday at the CliffView Retreat Center where we spent the past 24 hours with our Community Life Team. The poem captures my sense of hope for the coming season of worship and community life at our seminary.

There is a change in season approaching us and I must say its one of real growth and fruitfulness. The Lord is preparing for a banner harvest!
