I’m participating in Disciple Bible Study, a 34 week intensive. Every day, we have different readings (except on the seventh day…resting!). I have decided to document my initial noticings from a close reading of the scripture. Well, an attempt at a close reading.
- 104:1-2 – God is clothed with honor and glory, wrapped in light like a garment. What a beautiful image. And a reminder not to take the descriptions of God literally.
- 104:6-9 – Magic God is showing up. I meet this God in the children’s prayers at detention.
- 104:15 – wine, oil, and bread. Sacraments showing up!
- 104:27 – Ecclastical echoes
- 150 – Praise!!
- John 1:1-5 – Life is light of all people (see Psalm 104;1-2)
