Pentecost +9 Sunday – C2
Psalm 85 or Psalm 135
Obviously G*D is not controllable. Angers arise, wave-like, against a background of steadfast love. In fact, we call G*D to account, to change. We expect G*D to change, except in our creeds.
Even with the ability of G*D to change there is also a sense in which that which will ultimately be unchanged are such G*D actions as speaking peace, giving what is good, and following where righteousness leads.
This last image is particularly intriguing. What is this righteousness that goes before G*D and makes a path for G*D to follow? While we can imagine that as an aura of some sort emanating from G*D, there is also a separate reality sense to it as well.
If we can image evil happening separately from G*D, can we also image good happening separately. If both of these, what then is the role of G*D in creation and your life and mine? Might there be some management (or other presence) of the circumstances of life, rather than their initiator?

in the red corner
faithfulness springs from the ground
in the blue corner
righteousness leaps from the sky
in the center
a referee calls out the rule of engagement
thou shalt cooperate
for the increase of good
the sound of one cymbal is as nothing
but the sound of two, ahh, the sound
opening a way by garnering attention
for revival's time of rejoicing
a bell sounds, cymbals crash
peace is spoken, love is shown
