Nervious Musings-A combination of left-over chest congestion from my flu and staying up a bit too late watching the war had me going back to bed and blowing off chapel. I've got a bit of worry in my system. Somehow, I think there's one decent-sized atrocity up the Baathist's sleeve before things are all over. However, I know we're going to win and I know in my heart that it will be for the best. There are no atheists in foxholes, as this Lileks piece of today shows. He starts off with a picture of Slim Pickins riding the bomb down rodeo style from Dr. Strangelove, but when Mr. Mom starts talking about shekinah, things are getting serious.
In any case, it's obvious tonight this isn't SHOCK AND AWE, which brings me to the Library of Congress. Years ago ago I was standing in the LoC, looking up at the glorious ceiling, and I saw a curious phrase painted above: The true shekinah is man. That quote stuck in my mind, because I had no idea what it meant. Later I looked it up. A visible manifestation of the divine presence as described in Jewish theology. Shekinah. Sound it out. Okay, I'm off to the sofa to watch it all. No more tonight; what is there to do but watch and wait. You want something else? Here's some churches to contemplate while we white-knuckle through the next few days. This is a rough version of a site I'll be updating in months to come: postwar modern churches. Only five pages now, more to come. I’m not a praying man. But I am a man, praying. Go figure.
In evangelical circles, you'll hear of God's shekinah glory from time to time. Back when I was working at a hospital, I remember coming across a baby girl names Shekinah. I thought to myself that the mom must of spent some time in church; as a single mom, maybe she didn't spend quite enough time there. .
