The Creator is worthy!
God is worthy indeed!
The cool breezes, grey and damp days, and blowing leaves remind us of the divinity that undergirds the world.
The Creating One is worthy!
In each generation a particular purpose and particular tasks become a sacred duty.
The Beckoning One calls us to fulfill our purpose!
We look backward and see the sacred responsibilities of previous generations fulfilled admirably.
They were saints of the church!
We look ahead and see the need to bring God out of a mere tent. We look ahead and yearn to build a temple worthy of God.
David wants to build a worthy temple for the worthy God!
Like David, we think we know what God wants. But what if we don’t? What if our job is to open our minds and hearts to become a church informed by the wilderness of the pandemic? What if instead of telling God what we want to build, we listen to God?
Let us pray,
In this hour, God, help us to perceive you. Grant us the foresight to trust your dream for us. As we leave, help us to strive for your kin_dom within and beyond the COVID pandemic. Amen.
