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.

Inevitability of destruction, a reflection on 2 Esdras 16:1-34

Can you turn back an arrow shot by a strong archer? The Lord God sends calamities, and who will be able to drive them away? The Last Days will begin with lamentation, fame, wars--all sent for correction of humankind. Yet humans won't pay attention, won't quit sinning.

What would it take to get us humans to want to change? to change?
