Post Sansomite

Reflections using the hashtag cLectio are reflections posted primarily to Twitter with the necessary limitations of that platform. I am copying the posts here as an experiment. The posts are reflections on the Old Testament reading for the day. Today’s reading from Judges 17 is post-Sansom and rather pre-Trump (other populist leaders are readily available).

What is to become of this country
if the governing principle is
we don’t want to be rule takers
but rule makers and breakers,
if the leaders are unruly
and people are left to please themselves
and if the priests are also domesticated?
It sounds so careless. #Judges17 #cLectio

  1. Thank you for encapsulating the state of the nation today. I believe this is a time of great opportunity for the church. As Mordecai said ‘For such a time as this’ Time for us to step out in faith.
