May 10, 2020, Zechariah 8:1-8, 11-17 – Post 2 – ISSL Reflections

This week’s Scripture passage –

These words were first heard and later read in a world far distant from our own.

The passage as we find it in our Scriptures was selected to be read for this coming Sunday several years ago by the editors of this lesson series.

Yet …

Do the words have any contemporary ring for you?

How does the Prophet speak to you in our “shelter-in-place,” “keep your distance,” and world in which the common place has been so disrupted.

Can you hear him speaking to people who long to go back to a world that was familiar and comfortable for them? A world from which they had been separated? Maybe we could even say, a world that was torn from them?

Do the words of the Prophet (that he reports come from the Lord of Hosts), give you any reason for hope in your world today?

{ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est}
