kicking the darkness
I preached today. I don t know there s often a lingering sense that I was far from adequate. I still haven t preached my best. I preached on Psalm 37. My basic 3 points were: 1. depart from evil 2. do good 3. and you won t regret it. Simple. Verse 27 summarizes the whole psalm this way: Depart from evil, and do good; So you shall abide forever. I feel there is something so solidly true about this, even in spite of the obvious denials of it, the physical proofs that it ain t so. I have to believe that God is our refuge, bottom line. That justice will prevail. So I preach on. I ll "kick at the darkness til it bleeds daylight (Bruce Cockburn).
