Pentecost – C2
Psalm 104:24-34, 35b
All creatures look to G*D for sustenance in due season. Different feedings for different creatures.
A first reflection about due seasons: they always seem more overdue than they are. We hunger and thirst for food and justice and drink and peace on a regular basis and find that they are available on a sporadic basis. So, is G*D overtaxed with these sorts of details? Are we on a different schedule than G*D, with a short-term view of a long-term process?
Second, food is a broad category for the filling of a hunger. In light of a Pentecostal room with folks tucked away in prayer - fire might be food, wind might be food. We are strengthened again and go forth to speak in terms of another's language rather than insisting on our own experience.
Are you due some food from G*D? Are you sure?
