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.

Standards of Judgment, a Reflection on Psalm 82

One troubling aspect in this psalm is that God will judge our actions.

Something else troubling is the actions that we are going to be accountable for. God is going to judge whether we 

give justice to the weak and the orphan
maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute
rescue the weak and the needy 
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
We need to review this checklist as we determine how our church congregation should be involved with our neighborhoods and we need to review it as we determine what each of us personally is called to do.

 How far does this Bible stuff go? Should we also think about this list as we make decisions on who to vote for?
