Bursting Forth With Praise
From Ash Wednesday through the Lenten weeks that follow we prepare ourselves for the wonderful climax of Easter. Observance of the season is like watching the growth and blossoming of a beautiful flower. Eventually we cannot help but cry out in joy, “Alleluia!” This word of exaltation comes from the Hebrew, “Hallelujah,” which means, “Praise ye Jehovah (or Yahweh)!”
Let all things shout out in praise of God! – Praise can come not only from human beginnings but from nature itself. At the beginning of Holy Week, there was a bursting forth of praise as Jesus entered into Jerusalem. Some People nearby thought it was too much. They asked Jesus to quiet his disciples, but he answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.” (Luke 19:40)
Our cover picture echoes this truth. A weather worn pillar rises from a solid stone pedestal. Like the Psalm writer who sang, “The Lord is my rock” (Psalm 18:2), we see here a solid foundation and a sure support that makes our life secure.
Artistically woven white cloth floats over the pedestal, demonstrating with its sheerness the think veil, that stands between us and the God whom Jesus revealed to us. At the same time, a darker, textured cloth seems to depict the context of life, the variegated weaving of our daily activities. Above this we see fragile blossoms, pink and white. Beautiful experiences often seem short-lived, but they are renewable. Lives like plants, continue to grow. God’s beauty blossoms forth in many different ways at different times.
All of this calls to us human beings, asking us to praise God. Praise God with our whole selves: who we are, what we do and what we give to others. God centered lives can cry out, “Alleluia!”
