5: Transforming Gift

Life

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.)
