“Not a famine of bread”

This is from the Anglican liturgical calendar for the sixth Sunday in Pentecost. It is from the Book of Amos, which is only a few pages long.

“The time is surely coming, says the Lord God,
when I will send a famine on the land;

not a famine of bread, or a thirst for water,
but of hearing the words of the Lord.

They shall wander from sea to sea,
and from north to east;

they shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord,
but they shall not find it.”

I have been thinking much on the theme of a famine, not of bread, but of hearing the words of the Lord. In my considered opinion, this is an exact description of our current state of being in North America. See previous blog postings for your evidence.
