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.

To the Faithful, a Reflection on Psalm 85:8-13

God had showed Amos a fearful vision of sword and exile--and had commanded him to tell the people about this vision.

Psalm 85 is also concerned with hearing the voice of God--but this vision is one of peace and harmony.

When we meet the gift of God's love with the response of our faithfulness to the will of God, then we will have an abundance of what is good. The imagery is that of crops in the ground responding to rain from heaven--our land will yield its increase.
