dc.description.abstractA Covenant of Peace|While in exile Ezekiel was granted visions. |More disasters were approaching: the temple will be destroyed. |But the longer view brings comfort.|What is divided will again become one. Israel will be restored. God promises a new covenant.|Jesus is the new covenant. He brings healing and forgiveness. The lowly are lifted up.|Even enemies are invited. He does not kill. |Why, he is a man of peace. Of course, we must get rid of him.|In our time, violence drives millions into exile.| Refugee camps are crowded and unsafe. |Like our ancestors, the scattered dream of returning.|At home, most of us barely notice. War is not my problem. Refugees are forgotten in our busy lives.|Now and then, we check in. The sights disturb us. Flip the channel.|Hardly anyone bothers to act. |Where are the peacemakers, those troublemakers, in my town?|Holy Week begins.| We join those in exile.| Our bones are dry, we thirst.| Our lofty plans are shattered. |We are tired of the killing, tired of our obstinate divisions.| God, make us new.|In the quiet of these days |We turn to You.en_US
