Pentecost +5 - Year B
Out of the depths, we cry for intervention. When things are at least passable, we don’t.
Of course G*D marks iniquities, even color codes them. And yet we stand. Obviously iniquities are not all they are cracked up to be – eternal.
So G*D sees your iniquity and raises you two forgivenesses. This abundance boggles our minds and we ignore the second one. We insist that one iniquity only takes one forgiveness. Unfortunately we don’t see how our iniquity is not just with G*D but with Neighbor and One Another. We need that second forgiveness, and more, to be able to go to make amends and even to forgive those who won’t forgive us.
Blessings on being bold enough to claim both your iniquity and a most generous forgiveness.
