This week's picture...

The face of Lakota war leader Crazy Horse emerges from his Black Hills monument. The blasting goes on as a more and more recognizable likeness comes to be.

This seems an apt symbol for current Anglican struggles. Out of what seems dead and inert, Jesus Christ will bring a church more recognizable in His own image. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. (Colossians 1:15).

Please pray as the Archbishop of Canterbury and other Anglican representatives meet with the Episcopal Church House of Bishops later this week, and for The Common Cause Bishops who will meet after that. May the Lord bring forth a faithful Anglican Christian witness in North America.

Wonderful photo! And a perfect meditation on the gradual chipping away of crusty layers of sin that mar the image of the Holy One in which we were made. May the upcoming meetings be marked by the willingness of many to be "blasted" by the Holy Spirit.
