THIS WEEK IN WORSHIP

 September 14, 2014

"Lifting Up the Lowly"

In the great civilizations of the ancient Near East, and even in the city states of Canaan, social, economic, and political arrangements were such that a few people had great wealth, status, and power, while most were either excluded from the benefits of civilization or servants to those in power. These arrangements were beyond critique. They were a fact. Even those on the margins or of low status thought of these arrangements as normal and just, a part of the order of things shaped by the gods and reinforced by a cult of worship.
     One of the great mysteries of history is the emergence of the Hebrew people, who somehow came to possess theological resources to critique these arrangements and the language to call them unjust. Somehow these resources and this language survive and thrive to this day and have come to define what is normal and just for billions of people. This week in worship we celebrate that the downtrodden receive God’s revelation.    —Phil Waite
