Pentecost +22 - Year C
"We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, your holy temple" because such are imputed to us.
Can we as happily affirm that we are satisfied with the goodness of our "house", our community, our extended human family, our own body "temple"?
Might we claim abundance comes from a satisfaction with the interrelationship between G*D's house, our house, our neighbor's house? Does creation blossom as a result of how well our houses are open to one another?
Let's back up a moment, is creation blossoming? OK, now, why not? Have we effectively exiled one another from our lives or accepted exile from the lives of others? Pharisees and Tax Collectors, Exiled and Returnees, You and G*D and myself - mirrored images still looking for a home.
