Hopi Elders said in their prophecy, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”—Philippians 4:9

Where is God in all of this? I have heard it amidst disaster; I have asked it amidst injustice. Yet, on days with less shock and horror, I remember that the way in which the Divine chose to challenge and change the world was through relocation, discipleship, and resurrection. The Hopi Elders said in their prophecy, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” These are the words I think of when I wonder when the God of peace will ever come. But the God of peace is with us when we put into practice what we’ve received, and heard, and seen in Christ.
