Where Is God?

One of the many stories of interest that slipped through the (all too wide) cracks here was that the United Church of Christ voted on June 30th to adopt a policy of divestment regarding the modern state of Israel, in response to the occupation of Palestine and the Palestinian people.  During that General Synod, our good friend and inspiration Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb gave a powerful sermon, invoking both biblical and recent history to reveal the nature of the God we worship: a God that seems weak in the eyes of Empire, that chooses to reveal himself in the most unexpected places--in the world, and in our lives.
