Thanks for this, Gordon. You know I think a lot about the Shadow. In my classes I used to tell a memory of me at about age 10. I was visiting a nice middle class family (high probability they were Lutheran) with my parents.Their daughter — my age — and I went off to play in her bedroom. There she told me about the neighborhood gang she belonged to and how their motive was to hurt each other. I remember feeling a hunger to belong to something like that — I mean, HUNGER! I’ve never forgotten that feeling .I had an encounter with the Shadow that day. So real! So compelling! So fortunate I didn’t establish or join such a gang.
That’s a form of the Shadow I did not expect lurking in that little Mona! Wow! It’s there in all of us. Especially the Scotts wearing those silly tartan kilts and Marching around eating their chests, blowing those damn bag pipes in case we found some Brit we could kill. But the Swedes? Maybe the Danes, but not the Swedes! Maybe your little girl friend was Danish or Norwegan or a Swedish Baptist, but surely not a Swedish Lutheran.
Did you know that Harvard NT scholar Krister Stendahl retired to accept appointment as Lutheran Bishop of Stockholm? Wonderful man — NYT obit: https://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/16/us/16stendahl.html
The shadow has been lurking, now it’s lunging — now we see it in all is manifestations — with the right weapons we can see it for what it is and contain it — disarm it with love — and respect for God’s gift of science.
Mona, esI know you appreciate well-done worship. I’ve found the Westminster livestream to be head and shoulders above others I’ve seen. I you want to play the Presbyterian part of you tomorrow morning, tune in for the livestream at 10:30. Copy this link:
