Feb. 21, 2017, Psalm 121, Deuteronomy 11, Psalm 122 (17)

The writing here seems to switch between the voice of Moses and that of God. God here is demanding full allegiance from us and in exchange God will give material things or victories that provide land to the people. We talked about the Jewish refractories from Deuteronomy 6 that Jewish people touch or at least recognize as they pass it. Gene also talked about the book God’s Pause as a daily reading. We started to talk about angels. There are 7 layers of angels. The Muslims believe in angels as do the Catholics. How in this life be cognizant of God’s presence in our life, and Pries recommends daily recognition of God’s presence. Karen Armstrong has a book about religion and violence.
