Thought for the week Seventh Sunday After Trinity

"Do what you would wish them to do unto you" a voice whispered and she responded with hospitality with soup and benches and bags of clothing yes-clothing and feeding and housing the homeless, the rejected, the unwanted the absurd Christs who fit not in churches nor prisons nor hospitals the absurd Christs who slip through every mental grid and rational sieve those to whom no law or structure can apply the Christs walking on water instead of using boats or bridges the Christs reaching their purpose to live to love and embracing it
J. Janda

Deuteronomy (30.9–14)
Moses spoke to the people, saying, The LORD your God will make you abundantly prosperous in all your undertakings, in the fruit of your body, in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your soil.
For the LORD will again take delight in prospering you, just as he delighted in prospering your ancestors, when you obey the LORD your God by observing his commandments and decrees that are written in this book of the law, because you turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Surely, this commandment that I am commanding you today is not too hard for you, nor is it too far away. It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will go up to heaven for us, and get it for us so that we may hear it and observe it?’
Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will cross to the other side of the sea for us, and get it for us so that we may hear it and observe it?’ No, the word is very near to you; it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to observe.
