I was reflecting over this past week on the blessing of the much needed rain that we received last week that nourished my gardens. I started to think about how much we crave justice in our world just like we crave rain when it is hot & dry.
This song came to mind: “O healing river, send down your waters, send down your waters upon this land. O healing river, send down your waters, and wash the blood from off the sand. This land is parching, this land is burning, no seed is growing in the barren ground. O healing river, send down your waters, O healing river, send your waters down. Let the seed of freedom awake and flourish, let the deep roots nourish, let the tall stalks rise. O healing river, send down your waters, O healing river, from out of the skies.”
Rain and justice have much in common.
