Good morning, Cabin One!!!!
Rise and Shine and give God the glory, glory!
Rise and shine and give God the glory, glory!
Rise and shine and (stomp) give God the glory, glory!
Children of the Lord.
That's how my Saturday began last week, on the not-so-far-away but magically distant shores of Pilgrim Lodge Summer Camp. Fortunately, I was delivering the wake-up call, not receiving it.
The gospel lesson this week is a wake-up call, too, and I have to admit it goes against my inclinations to preach one in the summer. I like to be gentle in the summer months, when the people in attendance are "the faithful remnant," making it to church week after week while others sit in boats at their family camps.
On the other hand, maybe they are the ones who can hear it.
Where are you finding the Good News this week? What sort of wake-up calls lie ahead in your day? And most importantly, what would you like in your coffee?
Join in the comments as we encourage one another along the way today, and if your sermon is already finished, try not to rub it in!
