Psalm 46 (Koenig revised version)

God is our refuge and strength,
Though the virus should mutate,
though events shake our hearts;
though would-be pundits rant and rage;
though the tumult make us tremble;
God is our refuge and strength.

Selah

God is our refuge and strength.
We don our masks.
We receive vaccines (if we are able).
We wash our hands (often).
We physically distance.
God is our refuge and strength.

Amen.

“Mountains, deserts, rivers, boats and seas”

Check out this work by a couple of my friends. On Magdalena’s blog (link below), it first appears en Español and then in English.

A litany of affirmation for the church dispersed by the coronavirus
by Magdalena I. García

“And Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’” (Matthew 8:20, NRSV)

“It offends me [that politicians demand that our temples be open] because such assertions pretend to limit the worship of God’s people to a building, […] because Jesus was a teacher of mountains, deserts, rivers, boats and seas.”
– Marissa Galván-Valle

A bit of the litany in English:

We worship from our homes,
Mountain Teacher,
because our gratitude goes beyond
the sanctuary pews and the temple walls

We reflect in isolation,
Desert Mystic,
because our soul is strengthened
by the silence of active listening and the quietness of your presence.
