Pentecost +7 Sunday – C2

Pentecost +7 Sunday – C2

Years C
Psalm 82 or Psalm 25:1-10

What a scene -- G*D enters a divine council after having seen how Amos responded to his call and, having learned, stands to prophecy, "How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked?"

That divine council -- ours -- after all, we are there. In such instances, divinity blinds. Time and time again it is necessary to be called out, to see again the weak, etc.

So, we, too, might call out, "Do not remember my past judgments, according to steadfast love may I judge anew and break my own precedent."

It is this feedback loop of re-judging that instructs us. No feedback loop, no G*D.

hooray
I am divine
a most high child

woe
I am mortal
fallen into death

now
rise up
with healing

healer
wounded
wounded healer

lift
weal and woe
and every soul

give
justice needed
not justice achievable

move
between poles
holding both souls
