Sunday takes us into September and our “excursion” is into facets of Creation. This Sunday gives focus to the Oceans, their gifts and challenges and all the related water issues on our Planet Earth. Job and the Psalter will give us counsel. For some, the month may be a surprise in terms of the many ways creation and Creator are explored in scripture. Likewise, the dominance of the flood image keeps us anxious and presents an interesting sense of a God who “holds back” and “contains” the waters beneath, around, above. While we of sustained drought would long for a finger out of the dome for increased measure, the image of an involved God is full of wonder.
Psalm 104:1-9, 24-26
