[Nebuchadnezzar] replied, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the middle of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the fourth has the appearance of a god.” - Daniel 3:25 (NRSV)
When I was young, I used to go with my grandmother to paint ceramics. She would let me pick out a piece to paint. After I finished painting, my grandmother would put the piece into the incredibly hot oven, then take it out and put a protective glaze on it...

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
