Pentecost + 17 - Year A
Psalm 106:1-6, 19-23
Commercial exchange varies across different traditions and economies.
Does the economy of G*D vary according to circumstance and time?
This question is at the heart of what we might trust and hope for and invest with love defined. Presuming G*D to be living (with all the herky-jerky movement that means) or an ablity to move on from past unproductive responses, we might well fall into resistance to shift traditions [G*D might still be there] or a willingess to wait for a new revelation [G*D might be moving to a plateau I can’t even see yet].
Is it reasonable to expect that “great things” from the past will see us through a present dark valley? Where is that flame by night and cloud by day?
Perhaps most reasonably, what is keeping you from standing in the breach between G*D and neer-do-wells to protect both from rash action and cutting off possibility based on some pride or other code? Each of us have that opportunity, each in a different arena of life. Rather than try to figure G*D out, stand for some grand purpose, even in the face of an angry deity. Who knows what unknown test you will both be passing.
