I’m reflecting on our reading from Deuteronomy within days of the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report. It’s hard to read a text that sets a liturgy of thanksgiving for a people who believe God has given them someone else’s land.

This is a book about humility. That’s genuine humility, which preachers in our part of the world often lack. We talk about humility and then demonstrate that we’re not prepared to attend to voices other than our own, or to the Bible as others may read it.
