Songs, Stories and Ideas from the Spiritual Underground


It's about the people

God has always called us to live distinctive lives, different from the surrounding culture. One of the distinguishing characteristics of the Hebrews was their identity as a collaborative community under his direct leadership. However, they did not want to stand apart from surrounding nations. They imitated their neighbors instead. They begged for a king to lead the nation, to subdue their enemies, and to resolve their conflict. A priesthood where they all must share responsibilities must have seemed like hard work by comparison. Such interdependence would require humility, vulnerability, sacrifice.
