Dr. Althea Spencer-Miller Boldly Occupies Advent

Dr. Althea Spencer Miller, Professor of New Testament at Drew Theological School, offered the following Call to Inspiration as the Occupy Advent service began:

When the Lord said,

“Let the weak say we are strong”

We knew he had not said it wrong.

For we saw the little lily

Pushing up the mighty sod

And we marveled at the wisdom of our God.

They thought we were weak

But we know we are strong

We are the little lilies

We are pushing up the mighty sod,

And we marvel at the wisdom of our God.

These words play off an old Christian song, “I marvel at the wisdom of my God.”
