Pentecost +10 – Year A
Psalm 139:1-12, 23-34
Where is the presence of G*D?
It is right in the middle of wheat and weeds. It is in a hard rock pillow. It is at the farthest limits you can imagine and nearer than breath. It is as distant as Sheol and as close as a heart in the dark.
It won’t take long for G*D to search our heart, for G*D is already present and has indexed every part for quick retrieval.
It won’t even take something as dramatic as a parable or an extra-ordinary event. Think closer to the everyday -- G*D present in an acorn, washing dishes in the kitchen, attending a study group, chatting with a child about Iron Man on a ferry.
So take wing; settle afar. No matter the choice made, G*D is present: you are present -- so enjoy the interaction.
