Pentecost +11 – Year A
Psalm 105:1-11, 45b
"Make known G*D's deeds among the people." This is a call to tell parables, not to construct creeds.
Since G*D is notoriously obtuse in being revealed (whatever the motivation, plan, personality, or distractability that is behind that quality), a part of our partnership with G*D is to let others know what G*D is like.
Here G*D is like a real-estate agent in a time of volatility (perhaps not unlike our own). This agent has found a real fixer-upper that appeals to our participatory spirituality. The terms are almost favorable, just a bit more wholeness or perfection on our part and we'll be able to engage it directly.
While we are not yet able to sign on the dotted-line, the agent continues to be supportive and encouraging. "Canaan has you written all over it." "Don't give up." "Keep building up your reserves." "It will be worth it."
When you are finally settled in, remember with thanksgiving, the agent that facilitated what will become a blessing for us and others as we add on rooms in which ourselves and all will be welcomed to continue growing in love with G*D and Neighbor.
