1 Chronicles 16:29 (NRSV)
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offering, and come before him.
Worship the Lord in holy splendor;
The insanity of our current situation is debilitating. There were many moments over the past couple of months where activists have found ourselves deteriorating. The stress, the multitude of issues, the crushing weight of systemic racism was overwhelming us in the midst of covid-19. Then came Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor.
The centering and peace I have found has been in the midst of worship and meditation. The Chronicler is talking right this morning. When we ascribe glory, bring an offering, and worship in holy splendor, we are ushered into God’s presence. It is there that we find peace in the midst of chaos.
Now it’s your turn; ascribe, bring, and worship.
Now pray God would help our find peace in the midst of our chaos.
