Psalm 126

We have been looking through the seed catalogs with eager anticipation at our house.  To try new varietals, to wonder about possibilities, and to imagine the summer sun has brought us great happiness.  But it’s only March!  So we wait and hope, dream and plan, with the experience of those who have been blessed with abundance in the past.

The Psalm assigned for this Sunday, March 21, 2010, is brief.  Just six verses.  Brief, yet filled with meaning–both in the time and setting in which it was sung, but also for today’s people of faith.  I invite you to read it carefully, and think about your own hopes of restoration and renewal.  The metaphor is agricultural, but it could be anything.

What dreams do you dream with God?

God of all life, no sowing and reaping are done apart from you.  Amen.
