Poem for the week
If the Lord had not been on our side – let Israel say – if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us, they would have swallowed us alive when their anger flared against us;
the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us, the raging waters would have swept us away.
Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird from the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Thought for the Week
Taking the psalm at first sight, I understand it to mean that if God is not on our side, we would be overwhelmed by our enemies and our adversities, including our own self- inflicted problems. One may well ask, who or what are our adversaries?
In looking at various commentaries on Psalm 124, I came across the following:
The Psalm asks, “If the Lord had not been on our side ...” Does God really take sides? Some of the thinnest, most atrocious theology we overhear in our culture is about God being on the side of --- well, of the white people, or the pious people, or the people of a certain religious inclination, or those who are straight, or think the Bible is literally true. God can be on your side, and on the side also of your most implacable enemy. God not only can be; God is on your, and his side. How strange! And yet, God made both of us, God won’t settle for less than all of us, God is committed to the holiness and wholeness of me, and him, and her and them and those other guys.
If a baby is born in a Muslim or Hindu environment, surely that baby is not on the ‘other’ side, any more or less than a child from the other side of your town.
Maybe we need to look at all humanity collectively and know that we are all children of God fighting against adversities such as the current pandemic.
It would be interesting to hear alternate views on my reflections.
