We live in a graceless culture. Not a graceless world: every birdsong, every kindness, and every meal is a sign of God’s ongoing grace towards his creation. (Tim Chester, A Meal with Jesus)
Our world is rich with common grace, and is being transformed by God’s renewing grace in Jesus. The Cornucopia of Heaven is a new project of poems celebrating the riches of God’s grace in this world and in the church. Drawing from ancient liturgical prayers of the church and the sacred and celebratory music of Holst, Messiaen, Pärt, Bach and others, the poems form a sequence moving through the cycles of Christian worship, from adoration to confession to hopeful supplication. And, like the grace filling every moment of life points to the ultimate life to come, these poems look to that feast of plenty which God has in store for us. Come join me for the journey ahead.
