Lent 13

Today I wonder whether you can, in fact, make it all better, God. Because if you can ... but you don't (some divine moral issue with intervention??) ... then perhaps we should really just say that you can't. Because you won't.

Or is it the "you through us" solution, which I like from a perspective of incarnational theology and human agency, but it has its limits, too, because ... well ... we don't either (make it all better, that is). Or we won't.

Perhaps "make it all better" isn't the point, which I could also believe, but it's still a stinker of an answer in response to -- you know -- world peace and such.

A little help here, God?
