It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Creator and Sustainer, Reflection on Isaiah 40:25-27

The words of Isaiah continue to challenge us:

"Do you think the stars control your destiny? Well, just remember who created the stars. And then take consolation that the one who creates is the one who continues to care."

Psalm 147 sings of the work that the Lord has done (2-3) and the work that will continue to be done (6).
Praise the Lord!
How good it is to sing praises to our God;
for he is gracious,
and a song of praise is fitting (1).

Great is our Lord, and abundant in power:
his understanding is beyond measure (5).
