Better Friends Than Mountains II

    I dream of us packing up and going there. This series is off the charts amazing. I fully agree that the heart of God is grieving for these people and we must share His grief.

    MAD PROPS go to that bomb shell Christmas tree! In rock/pop we have many tiger related tunes: Dio’s song “Holy Diver,” “Ride the Tiger” by Jefferson Starship, Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” Elvis’s “Tiger Man” and Katy Perry’s “Roar.” In literature, we have William Blake’s gorgeous poem “The Tyger:”

    Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
    In the forests of the night;
    What immortal hand or eye,
    Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

    In what distant deeps or skies,
    Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
    On what wings dare he aspire?
    What the hand, dare seize the fire?

    And what shoulder, & what art,
    Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
    And when thy heart began to beat,
    What dread hand? & what dread feet?

    What the hammer? what the chain,
    In what furnace was thy brain?
    What the anvil? what dread grasp,
    Dare its deadly terrors clasp!

    When the stars threw down their spears
    And water’d heaven with their tears:
    Did he smile his work to see?
    Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

    Tyger Tyger burning bright,
    In the forests of the night:
    What immortal hand or eye,
    Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

    Dalton Thomas: “More and more I’m feeling it’s not about what we do, it’s why we do it…I want Jesus to be incredibly delighted in the way that we represented him here, and I want to be better friends than mountains to these people. I want to walk with them through fire, because Jesus has walked with me through fire. It’s gonna be costly, but it’s going to be worth it.”
