“Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters,” says the prophet Isaiah. Not an invitation to a private spirituality. Rather, a call to live generously with our neighbors. Not about the quid-pro-quo economics of the Empire (our thoughts, our ways). Rather, a call to think God’s thoughts and follow God’s ways toward a generous justice. Then we shall go out with joy and the trees of the field shall clap their hands! This Sunday we revisit ancient Israel’s choices in Babylon to help us understand our choices today. “Come, buy and eat!” says the prophet.
