Psalm 19 “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O God.”
John 2:13–22 speaks of Creation and justice in a different way. In the ancient world, the temple was understood as a microcosm of Creation. This relationship to Creation is evident in the architecture and decorations of the temple. Jesus cleansing the temple is a cleansing of Creation from injustice. In calling his body the temple, Christ holds together spirit and matter. The body is spiritual, is God’s temple. Christ’s body is a microcosm of Creation. If this is so, then Creation could be understood as the body of God.
We will share in Holy Communion this morning. Have some bread and a cracker and a cup of water, wine or juice at your worship centers.
