Psalm 8

Pentecost +1 - Year C

Psalm 8

Glory is found above and below any given point. Whether you measure from the heavens above, the earth around and about, or the depths of the sea/sheol—glory abounds.

This omni-perspective loosens our two eyes to let yet a third eye gaze thither and yon. Whatever is gazed upon is honored and glory shines back.

Whatever Pentecost has come to mean, there is everywhere evidence of background glory. In the midst of locked rooms, on the Serengeti Plain, circling Mars, exploring the Mariana Trench, or where you are, eyes that can see, see glory.

In the movie Up! the dog, Dug, is easily distracted by "Squirrel!" May you be easily distracted by, "Glory!"
