In the Christian imagination, the joining of heaven and earth has long been refracted through the joining of people in disparate social situations.

Isaiah 1:1, 10-20; Psalm 50:1-8, 22-23; (Genesis 15:1-6; Psalm 33:12-22;) Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16; Luke 12:32-40
I'm thinking about Psalm 33. It's a good one. It begins with music and ends with this reminder that princes and horses are not actually running the show. I know. I was surprised as well. Some days it might feel that way, mind you, but it's not really the way things are. I always want question that kind of logic...ontology again. If Congress reinstates the draft then they are running the show. There is this thing called "power" and some people have more than others in some contexts. How does an ontological theo-philosophical argument slow down Congress or what have you?
