Living Stones


1Peter 2:5-6, 9-10
(living stones building his house; holy priests who listen to God’s Word and obey; Once you were less than nothing; now you are God’s own. Your life has been changed by God’s kindness.)

Does the pearl form without stress?
Does the crystal without pressure?
You are plucked out of darkness
Made holy with the light.
Your core is molten,
In fusion with life:

Foundations of holiness.
Priests of sacrifice
Who listen and obey.
Drowned and rescued.
Asleep and inspired.
Shaken and fortified.

    I echo Catherine’s thoughts – love it – simple, yet profound.
