In preparing this issue, the greatest delight and surprise was “Rampart of the Word.” I’m also a little peeved at Martyn Jones, the author, because he “stole” an idea I’ve had for some time: to look at the simple objects that litter our churches and try to see their mysterious wonder.
But give Martyn credit: he actually acted on the idea. And, to be fair, he had no idea I’d been thinking of doing this myself for years. Also take a look at his meditation on those little communion cups we use so regularly. And Kleenex!
At any rate, Martyn has got the eyes that we at The Behemoth want us all to have, helping us spot the mysterious work of God wherever we might find ourselves.
