They Will Fly Up

February 07, 2015  •  1 Comment

One of the passages for the fifth Sunday after Epiphany is Isaiah 40:21-31. It's a passage for times like this, too frequent in human history. The chapter concludes with these words: "Don't you know? Haven't you heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. He doesn't grow tired or weary. His understanding is beyond human reach, giving power to the tired and reviving the exhausted. Youths will become tired and weary, young men will certainly stumble; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will fly up on wings like eagles; they will run and not be tired; they will walk and not be weary." (Common English Bible)

And yes, I know, this is not an eagle. It's an osprey and its young.
