28 July 24 – Sunday 17B (COCU 49B)

2 Samuel 11:1-15
Desiring David
violated Bathsheba,
to satisfy lust.

Deceptive David
planned for Uriah to die
through his loyalty.

Yet, despite those deeds,
God’s covenant with David
was not extinguished.

And for each of us
the mystery we name God
will remain faithful.
