In this morning’s reading from 1 Samuel are the foreboding words: and there they Saul king before the Lord in Gilgal. We know from early in the story it is God who ‘made’ Saul king. It seems to me Israel might have benefited from a descendant’s wisdom, the Psalmist who wrote:  I lift up my eye to the hills, from where is my help to come? (note: the hills are the presumed living places of local gods, usual customary sources of help) My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. We too should remember this tid-bit of wisdom for help, comes not from NSA surveillance not it’s detractors, but from our living, God.
