So Moses made a serpent of bronze, and put it upon a pole; and whenever a serpent bit someone, that person would look at the serpent of bronze and live.

5: Transforming Gift
A verse from today’s Old Testament reading which sets the theme for the week—Transforming Gift.
The snake, the instrument of death, becomes a sign of God’s gift of life and healing.
The gift is received as the people stop and look up.
(A snake in a back yard in Belize.)
