Russ Klassen, youth pastor at Sherbrooke Mennonite Church, provided a beautiful contrast between a mythopoetic text about Aten-Ra, the monotheistic representation of God as the sun, from Egypt in the Middle Dynasty (2000 BC – 1600 BC), and Psalm 104. In a Job-like message, the mystery and beauty of the world the One Living God has created is made apparent to both peoples, yet Russ drew contrasts between the distant, impersonal God Aten, and the immanent God of the Jewish people. This was a talk to stretch the mind and to find symbols and meaning in other works of the world that presaged the coming of the One Living God. With discernment, one can take useful meaning from such texts. [AP]
