I think this is the signal that it is about time for me to get an occasional sub for this feature! I apologize that this is the second late week in a row. Now, on with it...
I am thinking about persistence this week, both in the sense of God's persistence with us and our own persistence in holding on to things that might hold us back.
I'm thinking of the alternative reading from Genesis, and the Gospel lesson from Luke from this week's texts.
What are you thinking about?
