is a transliteration of the Greek word, εγερσις, which has the meaning of being roused to life. Thus, it is my hope that what you find on this blog will empower, arouse, stimulate, excite, and animate your life--your soul, your spirit--the wholeness of who you are.

Art Gallery

Outside, God has an art gallery
Always “Open”

Where living compositions
Shift their hues
And boldly repaint themselves

Where living textures
Invite a touch
And willingly share their presence

Where living contours
Appear as edges
And subtly move their lines

Where living shadows
Lengthen at eve
And teasingly shorten at noon

Where living images
Scramble away
And refuse to live as still life

Where living perspectives
Come forward
And yield not to foreshortening

Where nothing has a price tag
And everything is shared

The sign is always “Open”
To God’s art gallery, Outside.
