Looking out across nothingness, I became aware of something in the distance which was moving slowly toward me. At first it seemed to be a mass of gray without form, but as it came nearer I began to make out a shape, and then lots of shapes within the mass. It stopped moving some six feet in front of me, and my breath caught in my throat as I strangled on a gasp.
There before me were faces – hundreds upon hundreds of faces. They had no color other than gray. Each face was drawn and solemn, with hollow cheeks and jutting cheekbones, noses and chins. I thought briefly of Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” — that’s what the faces brought to mind. Some were thinner than others and some had mouths hanging open while others were closed and mournful.
I once visited Auschwitz and the memory of the pictures of the starving Jews came to mind. That’s what these people were — they were starving!!
The mass of faces began to move back away from me, like a moving picture camera fading back. Suddenly, to the left of the mass another shape came into focus. This one was in full color. The face was a face of total contentment and peace. The hands were folded nonchalantly in the lap. Then the face turned toward me and I saw that it was a woman – a very fat woman. She sat there so content, so peaceful in her abundance while those around her were starving to death!
It was then I heard these words in my spirit: “Feed My Sheep”
