an Advent Psalm in difficult times
Today's Advent reading in the Daily Office includes Psalm 37. I think it's a great Psalm for all american Christians today who are worried about their siblings who think politically different from themselves. So for those who fear I put this here. I'm sure this Psalm also brought comfort to those who were waiting for their Messiah while under Roman occupation. I'm sure it brought comfort to those believers who hid in the Roman catacombs. I'm sure it brought comfort to those who suffered in concentration camps or the communist gulags. I'm sure it brought comfort to African-American slaves. It is a Psalm of hope beyond what we can see with our own eyes.
