Valley of Dry Bones as metaphor

As I examine my proposed metaphor of the Valley of Dry Bones as a metaphor for ministry, I am quickened by the thought that:
Art is my footprint
Critical thought is my voice print
The Kingdom of God is my Spiritwind to carry footprints and voice prints to the Valley of Dry Bones, to speak to bones and breath. Art, Critical Thought, and the Kingdom of God are the footprints, voice prints, and Spiritwind of the Community of Faith to engage one another in the Valley of Dry Bones, and to speak to the bones of physical life and to the breath of spiritual life.
