Special Issue:
Rejoice in Christ


I bow in defeat

like a wind-blown seed

tossed from a barren tree—

I am cast down.

O Savior,

Thou who suffered

and died for me too,

Might I remember

that Thou

art the Giver

of the Gift;

Wind-blown seeds

can be planted

to rise again.

Christ in Gethsemane, by Harry Anderson
