So I wrote a little something for Interpretation Journal. I am posting the link below. I hope you’ll give it a look. It was almost as hard to write as giving birth to my firstborn.
Habakkuk comes before God with urgent fears for the innocent collateral damage that is sure to follow a Chaldean invasion, and God says: “Let me check my appointment book. Oh yes, I see. Yes. There is an opening coming soon. I’ll let you know.”
In the midst of a season of heightened awareness of injustice and a strong sense of call to do something about it, I am finding Habakkuk a good traveling partner. If you have a chance please read: Between Text and Sermon: Habakkuk 1:2-4, 12-17 and 2:1-4
