Year A - Third Sunday in Lent or Conviction 
March 23, 2014
About what is your anger swearing these day. G*D’s swearing during the Exodus extended the time between Egypt and an Utopian Promised Land. The journey went from a straight line to a generational wandering.
This is a fine example of a negative swear. “Not you!”
It is more difficult to have a positive swear. “No matter what, You!”
This is part of our journey, opening a way where there seemed to be nothing that could be done. This usually entails some behavioral change on our part and a commitment to continue saying yes to a needed change, regardless of the obstacles.
I’ve been pleased to be part of the Love Prevails part of Kairos CoMotion that has a positive swearing that if we Disclose(t) the consequences of discrimination, Divest providing resources that prop up divisive theologies, and Disrupt the silence about the way we hurt one another, then an Affirmative Land will help us be better together.
What kind of swearing are you doing today?
