Episode 7 Reflections
EPISODE 7: THE PROPHETS REWARD
The mark that once bound the Survivors together—however mysteriously– now threatens to divide them. Everyone senses that something momentous is occurring, but no one– least of all the three whose marks have changed—can say what it is.
Owen, Able and Tom now share an intense, almost primordial, urge to undertake an unspecified journey with an enigmatic destination—40. Their responses to surprising development are as varied as one would expect.
Owen scans the sky for portents. Able fasts. Tom searches for facts. All three come up dry.
My soul thirsts for the Living God: when shall I see God face to face?
My soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land.
I am a stranger in this world– do not hide your commandments from me. My soul is crushed with longing.
Psalm 119: 19 – 20
We thirst. We faint. Our souls are crushed with longing.
Our longing for God’s commandments draws us to change; our thirst for wholeness leads us to change; the reproach of the prophets demands that we change.
