Psalm 99

Epiphany 6 - Year C

Psalm 99

"Mighty King, lover of justice", is an image we aren't willing to see in one another. We know how we spin things to get what we want (is this another image of G*D?) and are therefore not willing to entrust justice to another. It is as though we have "executed" justice and righteousness before they could be proven useful in our midst.

Let's think about what it means to be made in an image of creativity. How do you rank the importance these three images of G*D or gods: namer of animals, cleaver to another, or lover of justice? Now, what other image of G*D is important to you and where would your rank it? Follow this pattern long enough and it is likely that you will find the image that makes you shine because you are doing your being.

In whatever ways Moses, Aaron, and Samuel (as well as Zipporah, Miriam, and Hannah) image G*D's forgiveness, justice, and righteousness, so might you and I. Yes? Yes! So, keep on keeping on with all of that and more (including G*D's play, work, and artistry imaged in you).
