Pentecost +24 Sunday – C3
Isaiah 65:17-25 or Malachi 4:1-2a
Hearken back to a conversation G*D was having with whatever heavenly hosts are. Way back at a time of a creation - a creation or two ago.
In such a yesteryear G*D announces, to whomever, an intention for a next creation of heaven and earth, version x.c. In this version, new or renewed features will be featured. Key among them are issues of joy and time and meaning and healthy relationships.
Among the questions before us is whether we are at the end of version x.c and a new healing needs to rise - x.d.
There is still some time to go before we get to version y and z and whatever might be beyond our current ways of measuring. What is not in doubt, though, is a progression that will keep coming to our attention as free-will and gracious love bounce off one another loosing untold additional particles of life that will need to be taken into account with a new version of what we are doing with the process of creation, experience, re-creation.
= = = = = = =
a new tonal relationship
an expected next note
with a variation
traps us in an echo chamber
turning a first harmony
into dissonance beyond hurtful
with its predictable
worlds go on again
