Where I am now

When I sat down to review the visits and views of this blog, “A Simple Desire”, I couldn’t help but notice the views and visits have been increasing, as if people are trying to search and figure where I am. Maybe I am wrong about that. But if it is true, that the absence of postings here is causing an up surge in activity, I want to remind established readers and new visitors that I have moved to a different WordPress site, “Pondering From the Pacific“. And it has been business as usual there, where I post 4 times a week, and more often when the Revised Common Lectionary has special celebration days. Because I have not posted anything new here (excluding this) since October 4th, I have to conclude that people are reading “older posts”. I want to remind you that anything written since January 2015 is on the site “Pondering From the Pacific”. Anything older than that can be found only at “A Simple Desire” which is where I am posting this note.

I am gratified that the older posts are still being read, and I encourage you to do so. But I also want to make you aware that new posts are debuting elsewhere. And I hope you come visit me there as well!

As of November 1, 2017 I am planning on “dismantling” the “Follow” button here .  .  .  because there is nothing new to follow! But please keep returning here! There is a vast wealth of commentary and scriptural thought here, and I am hopeful it will continue to be available for years to come! Shalom!

The Next Stage

As it is the beginning of October, I am carrying out the next stage of moving to the new blog site Pondering From the Pacific . For a while I had been posting the new posts on both sites, to make the transition a gradual. Then I posted just the title of each new day’s posts and the link for each specific post. Now I am simply directing both beloved established readers and new readers alike to the new site. I am ever hopeful that those who have been long time readers will make the move to the new site. Nothing has changed except the “address” of where I post!

Season after Pentecost (Proper 19 [24]): The Psalm Passage – A psalm of celebration, remembering the exodus from Egypt

When Israel went out from Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, Judah became God’s sanctuary, Israel his dominion.” (Psalm 114: 1 – 2)

When the Hebrews left Egypt, the Lord God claimed the called and chosen people as the Divine’s own again. No longer under the rule of Pharaoh, the people of God had to learn how to live as God’s people again. As I said, very tough lessons to learn. But this psalm does not dwell and focus on the people of God, but on the Lord God and might it took to reclaim the Divine’s called and chosen people.
