Pentecost + 20- Year A
I am looking for an artist who can portray some sense of a G*D-presence around which is a prayer shawl fringed with such as Moses, Joshua, and You (yes, and me, too).
Unfortunately this prayer shawl finds itself in a strange world and prayer turns to preying upon strangers. We are all complicit in damming rivers for our own benefit and overrunning our neighbors property while calling it G*D’s will.
How important is it that we claim a right to protection from G*D without a concomitant sense of responsibility to nourish others?
Sometimes I want to jump out of G*D’s phylactery and fall away from privileged prayer’s fringe.
