Miracles Demand Perspective

AGREATMIRACLEHAPPENED

I threw this together yesterday using Notegraphy, just playing around with visual representations of this month’s text. All the angles in this image reminded me that how we see the world – and if we can find the miracles, depends on our perspective. We may need to explore multiple angles to see all the ways in which the light refracts our experiences.

Partnership of Darkness and Light

Micah 7-8

Are light and darkness in competition with each other or are they partners in creation? Looking at the quotes in the Jewish Text Art Challenge Gallery, it seems as though the God’s separation of light and darkness created an unintentional judgment and prejudice: light is better than darkness. The quote from the prophetic Book of Micah reminded me that God’s separation did not mean that these two elements were in competition. Rather, light and darkness were intended to work together, to be in a balance. This quote reminds me that this balance can only be achieved when we our creativity allows space, and is a partnership for both. Do you agree?
