Year B - Pentecost +4 or Energy to Witness 4
June 21, 2015
Nations, Churches, and Other Institutions have “sunk in the pit that they made”. The very traps they employed to achieve their power and positions have come back to bite and trap them for the world moves on and they have so tied themselves to a last war or a last creed that they cannot see a “new thing” that delivers their usual clientele, giving immunity to the same call to mindless patriotism or blind faith.
If only nations and churches and other institutions had kept verse 10 pasted to their mirrors so every time they basked in their own glory they would see, “For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor perish forever.” Yes, if only but so far it has never been.
And so a next time of storm and fear is blowing around and ordinary stones from a river (not cornerstones or capstones/keystones) will remind us that we are human, not cogs in a theoretical economic system that projects losers or imagined theological system that projects sinners.
Karma rises as humans affirm their humanness, their G*Dliness.
