Since starting our summer series of Considering the Birds in Scripture, I am so much more aware of the birds all around us. I hear them early in the morning outside my window. Right now a little bird is splashing in the rain puddle in the church driveway. Birds flit through the cemetery most of the day, sometimes alone, sometimes in pairs, sometimes chasing one another. Do you notice the birds?
This week we will hear about a domesticated bird – the hen. Jesus actually compares himself to a mother hen while you and I are the scattered chicks. Not a generally compelling or flattering image I must say, but quite interesting once you reflect on chickens and chicks, the protection of a mother hen’s wings, imprinting, and the dangers of domestication. . . . .
