What are the benefits? A Prayer in Symbol: Next 4th of July/Make command!... Prophetic Theater also.

Benefits: It’s a prayer, it’s prophetic theater, it moves toward the imperative, it demonstrated psalmodic response…and more. You won’t waste another 4th.

Being Chapter 3 of HartmanBook:NextLayerOfSocialOrder

Introduction:  Next 4thWalk your community’s square/heart as prophetic theater +.

In a haiku—Next 4th, make command.
Circumcize community.
Start around, do good!

[A better haiku is at the end, better understood after having gone through this next writing, which I pray that you will do. The start of it is the title. Yes, encourage one another. It’s also a 6th Word duty.]
Here are a few statements, from which I will draw conclusions, in a way similar to the deduction game that I think is derived from Lewis Carroll which allows one to find out who is Mr. Jones’ son, given that Mr. Green lives in the 2nd house from the corner, and Mrs. Smith bakes cookies, etc. 
After that, I’ll give some history about how this came about, and show both some results in this case, and how it might be a surplus-producing ministry.

Th, the statements:

You are your holidays.

Many have missed the opportunity that the 4th of July offers in America.

But people ‘buy’ cures rather than prevention.  Thus, this is posted after the 4th of July celebrations for Anno Domini 2014 (PhiladelphiaCoram861).

A holiday is when the whole people celebrate one thing at the same time together: ERH

Also, maturity is the one of the three (Holy War against the devil and his angels {The devil is God’s devil: Luther}, Redemptive History, and Maturity) that, I say,  involves reversing the trend.  Jesus is He Who Reversed The Trend. Examples would include Constantine’s remodeling pagan temples into Christian churches, the transformation of Saturnalia into the Feast of the Nativity, etc. Turning liabilities into assets is the mark of the Christian Era: Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy

We have another such opportunity here and now.

We can disciple our respective communities.

Use the Cross of Reality, modified.

Next, here’s BACKGROUND TO what happened to me.
[A haiku in the middle, especially for those following the definition of :’nation’ in Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, that it involves blood, soil and covenant.)
Me RespondNation
I bleed in our soil planted.
Corn death to their life.
Here’s the Walk, applied to Pella, and omegalphically to Stuart and Guthrie Center.
Start at the book store west of the southwest corner of the square, and walk to the southeast corner and you get Forward to 1847, when the Dutch settlers arrived at Refuge/Pella.  Important chronological events are on flags along this path. 1847 Pella means refuge. We will be glorifying refuge, making it heavier, more applicable at the time.  Timing is key to our exegapp of history and The Bible/Revelation.
Then go In north to the northeast corner, to 1922 (history book written)/1936 (Tulip Time town celebration started).  Again, chronological flags.
We are building a Memory Palace.
The go west Back to the northwest corner 2014, along these memories.
Going Out is going south. Having received Refuge, how can we give Refuge?  That is the question that results in the New Torah (JBJ, ‘Crisis…’).  Also, Planetary Service (ERH). The Forward is Law, Imperative. The In is Lyric, Subjective.  The Back is Evaluation, Narrative. The Out is Fact, Objective…in this iteration. Iter is road, ‘Ite, missa est’. Don’t forget all of North’s 5s, especially THEOS—Transcendence, Hierarchy, Ethics, Oaths and Sanctions, Succession. Etc.
For Stuart, we start in 1871 with the foundation of the town along the Big Mover of the day, the railroad, to serve food growers locally. 150 years later, if Stuart Feeds Her Hungry? works out, in 2021 we will have glorified that by being a town along the Big Mover of the day, the internet (sic), with a website and YouTube channel helping food growers around the world feed their respective poor and others with locally grown food.
Guthrie, a county seat, might become a center for Christian Court TV?  I don’t know.

What could you do? [Email me, I can help in a small way for a short time].  How/when was your town/community/neighborhood/periscope—area of Biblical revelation in which you specialize---…founded.  How can it be heavied, glorified, made timely.  Example, who was St. Louis, and why?  Is it applicable?

Even deeper is ‘America’.  How/when was it founded, and why?  How can she be glorified, for we know that ‘…it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. …’This, I cannot take up at this time.

But, it is maturity to be imperatived by all these holidays, from all layers of social order—tribal, empire, ecclesiastical, educational…and the next layer of social order to come. (Posts on these may be forthcoming, Lord willing). Tribal, community. Empire, day off work. Israel should have been, perhaps, some sermon on the relation or non-relation of America to Christendom, Greece/education, no classes?

For instance, as I walked PellaSquare, which search, I recalled the origin. Also search ‘How To Make Your Communities Better’. Wise ones like these, and one could even have a surplus-producing ministry helping communities in this.

Here’s a haiku about the origin and early impact.
The knives of my feet
Cause  cutoff of tpower
Do a PellaSquare?

WHAT DID HAPPEN TO ME? We moved to Pella to get Christian care for my mother.  To put it euphemistically, it didn’t work out. Now, a very wise one who knows me well thinks that I am many bricks shy of a load, and also stupid.  But, I was asking for a sanity check when we celebrated The Circumcision of Our Lord on New Year’s Eve, 2005-6.  Am I crazy? I asked. I got an answer. It was, walk around the square, putting the chronology of care along the sides, and calling the sides Guilt, Grace, Gratitude, and GoForth+. Thus the religious heart of the community would be contrasted with actions not in accordance thereof.. Join, No Informed Consent, St. Wjlesa (SomeTimes We Just Let ‘Em Slip Away), Ethics Committee, Circumcision, Doctors’ Strike, Girardean Funeral. From 2007 on, I have done this…alone, yearly.  That’s OK, for MaeDay80 was two days--80 days inclusive after Resurrection, and the 4th of July (4th of July is very significant in Hartman history). Whichever came first was Confession, above, the Walk.  The latter was Conference.  I ‘invited’ special speakers.  Ibsen, of ‘An Enemy of the People,’ Thomas Szasz of ‘Ceremonial Chemistry,’ ‘The terror, the terror,’ I think, of, I think, ‘Heart of Darkness’. And more.

ANY RESULTS? Has anything eventuated from this Prayer in Symbol? They subcontracted eldercare to the Arminians of Wesley Life…was that a consequence?  Godparent For Eldsters should be of value someday, with Rescue Teams and Cure Teams—I call in the fourth time around.

The knives of my feet
Cause  cutoff of tpower
Do a PellaSquare?

[Yes, having both ‘t’ and ‘p’ is deliberate, a way of saying both ‘power,’ and ‘tower’.]

YOUR PRAYER IN SYMBOL, YOUR PROPHETIC THEATER. So, all these could be being brought to mind as you walk your community’s memory palace.  It surely can be improved from this rough beginning of play, and incubation (ERH—10 Commandments of Education, 12 Tones of the Spirit) and preparation to conquer, of which early stuff I am. I’m NOT into the quotidianity, or the quotidiNanity, though ‘Puritan Gift,’ a very good social history that is also very good about management,  has this quote: ‘…that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs. George Eliot, Middlemarch.  Nor am I a closer.

But I have something to contribute, having exegapped: applied exegesis of history and Bible.

Next 4th of July
Make command! Communityv!
Cross Realityi!

CONCLUSION: Don’t waste another 4th. Turn a liability into an asset with a prayer in symbol, prophetic theater—walk the heart of your community, the square, making command, glorifying…and more.

Love in King Jesus,
