Psalm 124

Pentecost +15 – Year A

Psalm 124

If Charlie were not on our side [remember when] we would have sunk.
If Mabel were not on our side [remember when] we would have sunk.
If G*D were not on our side [remember when] we would have sunk.
If Mom were not on our side [remember when] we would have sunk.
If Jesus were not on our side [remember when] we would have sunk.

Who else would you add into this list?

Sometimes our thanks is creation-wide. Sometimes it is very specifically located. Either way, when we experience being lifted up it feels as though we were a bird escaped from a cage. A new horizon is before us.

In all of this we find ourselves unable to say "thanks" to G*D without also expressing it to Charlie. Likewise, we can't say thanks to Mabel without including Jesus. May your thanks always bind together new relationships.

If we are to love both G*D and Neighbor, we are to thank both Neighbor and G*D.
