"There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it: a Dormouse was sitting between them, fast asleep, and the other two were using it as a cushion, resting their elbows on it, and talking over its head. `Very uncomfortable for the Dormouse,' thought Alice; `only, as it's asleep, I suppose it doesn't mind.' The table was a large one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner of it: `No room! No room!' they cried out when they saw Alice coming. `There's plenty of room!' said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large arm-chair at one end of the table. " From Alice in Wonderland
And yes there is plenty of room, food and drink for everyone. So pull up a chair with pen and paper in hand/or laptop and the bible in the other as you write your sermon. Its early morning, and I am already working on two sermons, one for the morning worship and one for the evening.
I'm not doing the lectionary, I am still preaching on the 8 Quality Characteristics of Natural Church Development. This one is on Passionate Spirituality. Saturday we have a one day VBS so I'll be busy with that most of the day. But I will be checking in and out to welcome you to the party, refill your drinks and plates. I'll even pray with you if you want or need it, like if you get stuck or something. Bob is doing child care so drop the kids off at the nursery.
So what's your plan? Any body need a fresh brewed cup of coffee, just take a seat and I'll pour you one. Blessings on you as your write your sermons.
