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.

Praise the Lord, a Reflection on Psalm 104;24-34, 35b

Youtube has several versions of Psalm 104 including a Praise song version, an Amy Grant version, a photographic presentation.

Psalm 104 summarizes creation. In this week's lection, we give thanks to the Lord for the creatures of the earth and for the sea, great and wide. We recognize that all the gifts we have originate with the Lord, and we recognize the part of other people in ensuring that the Lord's gifts are distributed.

As we read--and pray--toward Pentecost, we read verses 30, "When you send forth your spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the ground." and we respond with verse 35b, "Bless the Lord, O my soul. Praise the Lord!"
