O King of the Nations

For thus says the LORD of hosts: Once again, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake the nations, so that the treasure of all nations shall come and I will fill this house with splendor, says the LORD of hosts. (Hag 2:6-7)

Rather than write a reflection for today, I thought I would invite you to contemplate one of my favorite icons:

(from the Baptist school of iconography
in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia)

You read that right: the Baptists of Georgia adorn their churches with icons.

O King of the nations, so long desired,
cornerstone uniting humankind:
come and save the work of your creation.
