Bible stories II
We are entering into the second year of a global epidemic with no clear end in sight.
While mass vaccinations bring hope of returning to some semblance of normalcy, we must still cope with the trauma of loss and fears for the future. Like great tectonic plates, our societies have shifted, unbalancing our habitual structures and forcing us to transform. We see it happening all around us, in our families, in our communities, as
well as in ourselves. When the playing field is radically changed, how do we face the unknown?
Can we prepare ourselves for a new order, Whose outlines we can only guess at? Does the Bible offer us insights or guidelines for dealing with survival? We are being asked to cope with drastic shifts, effecting our livelihoods, our relationships, our modes of living. What can we learn from the great myths of our Western tradition to shore up against uncertainty and face the miasmas of fear engulfing our societies?
Two stories come to mind, Noah and the Flood, Jonas and the Whale.
In Noah’s saga, while the catastrophe does occur, one man and his family, as well as one couple of
each animal species, weather it through the disaster. The story gives us a detailed map of what needs to be done to survive.
In our second story, disaster is averted through the reluctant doings of the prophet Jonas. But how?
Today we are in the midst of a Noah story of sorts and in great need of being guided through its eddies and tides. We are simultaneously faced with an even greater disaster in the making: The rapid destruction of our ecology through climate change. Will we turn this unfolding disaster around in time to save ourselves, the many endangered species of animals and plants, and the earth?
As the people of Nineveh saved their great city, with Jonas’ help? We are all engaged together in this epic moment. Let us, during three days together, explore how we can quantum leap our consciousness to a supranatural, prophetic state. Together let us envision a future that returns paradise on earth and our societies back to peace and mutual cooperation. Get ready to close your eyes and envision the New World your soul longs to manifest.
