15 October 2023 – Sunday 28A (COCU 60A)

(Exodus 32:1-14)
Moses was with God,
but the stiff-necked crowd rose up,
wanting other gods.

God threatened their end,
Moses pleaded for their lives,
and God relented.

Moses convinced God
on their basis for being,
God’s own sworn promise

Reason not revenge
resolved the burning issue;
a model for us.
