Advent 4 - Year C
"To everything turn, turn, turn - there is a season."
"Turn, turn - till by turning we come round right."
By one tune we wait our turn. By another we do the difficult work of simplifying.
Here we appeal to G*D to turn and turn again until our lives are righted. This is a waiting on our part and a working on G*D's part. Behold, another fine example of having our cake and eating it, too.
Imagine how this psalm would be different were the action to be the other way around, G*D waits while we turn round.
Imagine how this psalm would be different if we participated with G*D in the waiting and the turning, appropriately timed.
