Pentecost +24 - Year C
2 Thessalonians 2:1-5, 13-17
Don't let anyone tell you that a particular election, day, or event ushers in the the salvation of America, Christianity, or your own soul. Such extravagance of perspective, of punditry, of spin is but a glimpse at the way the satan, the tester, the confuser works - through false ultimates.
We are so gullible for such. After all we are images of G*D who thought Eden was ultimate only to find in the cool of the day how hot-headed such an envisioner can become. Fortunately we can learn.
Thanks be given that our call is not to present perfection, but standing firm and holding fast to a simple task, finding comfort and strength in every good work and word - yours or someone else's.
These little things refresh us, G*D, and creation.
