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.

A Song for Earth Day

Sing GOD a brand-new song!

Earth and everyone in it, sing!

Sing to GODworship GOD!


Bravo, GOD, Bravo!

Everyone join in the great shout: Encore!

In awe before the beauty, in awe before the might.


Get out the message—GOD Rules!

GOD put the world on a firm foundation;

He treats everyone fair and square.


Let’s hear it from Sky,

With Earth joining in,

And a huge round of applause from Sea.


Let Wilderness turn cartwheels,

Animals, come dance,

Put every tree of the forest in the choir—


An extravaganza before GOD . . . 


GOD rules: there’s something to shout over!

On the double, mainlands and islands—celebrate!

Bright clouds and storm clouds circle ‘round . . .

Lightnings light up the world . . .

The heavens announce that GOD will set everything right,

And everyone will see it happen—glorious!


You, GOD, are High God of the cosmos,

Far, far higher than any of the gods.

Psalm 96-97 from The Message
