Snacking on the Word: Why Should They Say?

Why should they say among the peoples,
“Where is their God?”

Then the LORD was stirred to concern for his land
and took pity on his people. (Joel 2:17d-18)

It’s got to be the most bitter question a non-believer can ask one of us, don’t you think? The psalmist struggled with it here and here and here. In some ways, it’s worse than having our bones shattered.

I like the refrain of confidence from the 6th verse of the 27th:

Even now my head is held high above my enemies on every side!

There’s no avoiding Lent now, my friends. The only way out is through. The retreat, or at least it’s preliminary stage, is on. God be with us all.

    Love the photo. It’s from the St. Thomas Good Friday Stations on the Iowa State University campus, isn’t it? If I’m not mistaken, it’s near the armory.
