In this Psalm we have wonderfully evocative langauge talking about who we "sit" with in this life. I couldn't help but hear those words as describing the place where many faithful people have sat over the years, our sanctuary. It has certainly been a place where we have gone "in procession around your altar." And yet, we cannot do so this day. And so in the closing words I heard the beauty of our world as the place in which the glory of God abides. How do we hold those in tension? How to we long for a return to our sacred places while searching for new ones?
