Brueggemann’s groupings of the psalms seem to be comparable to human history in which humans have lived in God’s love and grace. The orientation, disorientation, and new orientation are the forms in which most humans live. He sets his own path and does his best for it, but he falls apart after suffering or losing to himself, and then he rises anew. This is also true of Christian spirituality. Full confidence in God’s creation, and soon-to-be-destroyed belief, and recovery. I have lived such a life as well. I served the church as a pastor in Korea, but it is not much different from this form. Perhaps not only me but all of us will continue to live in this form. But I just try and expect that God’s grace will stop me from going through this process.
