    Lay Down Your Weapons
    a reflection on Psalm 46

    What a blessing it is to know that God is the God of the universe. The Creator and Sustainer of life. The Psalmist declares in Psalm 46 that it is this God who is a present help in times of trouble, our defender, and our hope. But what happens when we are not on God’s side so much as our own side? When we go to the Lord for our own self-interest over that of another? What happens in communities and relationships when Christians have very different perspectives and desires for a situation and ask God to be that “very present help”? What does it mean for believers, in the midst of our own sanctification and Christian journey, to be still and know that God is God? In this reflection, we will gain a deeper understanding of all these questions and more as we join together to listen to the voice of God.
