river dance

Sunday May 17th, Psalm 98: Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the earth and all living things join in. Let the rivers clap their hands in glee! Let the hills sing out their songs of joy before the LORD. For the LORD is coming to judge the earth. We are not alone in being loved. When God looked at creation and all that had been made, God said, “It is good.” That pronouncement of goodness was not only for the part of creation “made in God’s image,” but also for the rest of creation. It was less a statement of pride than a proclamation of, and creation of, innate attributes. All people will rejoice at the coming of the Lord. All creatures will rejoice at the coming of the Lord. All creation will rejoice at eh coming of the Lord. We ought, out of respect for God, show a little respect for the rest of God’s creation. The Psalm is about creation, but it is also about calling. A calling to you, to me, and enemy, to see one another as brothers and sisters, created in the image of God. Created in the image of Love. Created for the purpose of the mutual benefit, the Mutual Benefit, of all creation, recognizing the demise of one, being in part, the demise of all.
