A Morning Theophany at Noah’s Arcs 2022 ‘Let the fields be jubilant and everything in them.’ Psalm 96:12 Lambs play ‘king of the castle’ from old mats, graduate to upturned water troughs, leap as only tups do once adult, feed with tails whirring like prayer wheels. Cuthbert watches from solitary walnut tree ….. smiles as leaves and lambs unfurl.
