The Beauty of Creation
By Climate Change=Wildfires=Smoke=Can’t See,
And Can’t Breathe!
Rejoice greatly, O daughter Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter Jerusalem! Lo, your king comes to you; triumphant and victorious is he, humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Words of Grace For Today
The world seems to be totally messed up.
Lies take the day.
Fake news creates convictions that there is no climate change, just normal evolution. (Really!?)
Politicians that believe their own lies and fake news.
And middle classes that think the fake news politicians are going to actually work for them, and not the special interests and big businesses that support them in exchange for decisions that favour their businesses, or hide the reality of their raping the planet and our future.
The meek shall inherit this!
As one of the meek I will say a resounding, “No Thanks! Keep your messes and give us the New Jerusalem without you or your messes!”
(Maybe that is too much for a meek response?)
and then even this sometimes meek and sometimes not so meek person gets to remember that what appears to be a total mess is not beyond God salvaging great good from, and us inheriting it just may be the best thing this world will ever see, other than that God came as a meek saviour, riding on the foal of a donkey. Not the ride for a great leader, eh?!
But exactly the ride for God. For God would show us that great rides, great pomp and ceremony, wild parties of excesses, and shows of great power, force, and privilege, and not even the joys of wondrous comforts in life … all this is not what God created us in creation to be able to experience.
God created us to be able to give. To give life to other people. To restore, protect, use sustainably, and enjoy all of creation.
I guess us meek people (and the not so meek among us) can celebrate today all that God gives us, as we share it with as many people as we can.
