Okay, so it's not the eleventh hour yet; it's barely Saturday. However, it is, technically, that pressured preacher day, and hey, it's my first post on the RevGals site, so I wanted to get a jump on things. Big shoes to fill here. Also, I've never been known as an early riser, so I wanted to greet you early birds without actually being awake myself!
I've set the timer on the coffee pot, so it should be ready when you get up. Same rules we use at my favorite camp: if the supply looks low, make another pot before the next person will be forced to drink the dregs. The bar is stocked with a variety of libations (alcoholic and non), but if you want something fancy, you'll have to hang out for a while (there are benefits to paying your way through college and seminary by bartending). Comfy chairs abound, so make yourself at home, and let the creative juices flow! I'll join you when I've slept off my time with the bar ministry and taken the dog for our morning run.
I'm preaching the final sermon in my series on David, so I'm a bit apart from the lectionary, but I'm looking forward to hearing your insights. Now, well, you know what to do. Blessings on your preparation!
