The news in my life is that I'm in transition between my current position and the one I'll start in two months. Things are clipping right along, and I got keys to my new apartment today - which is great, except that it makes me feel a bit like a cat's cradle: stretched between two points, and all twisted up in the middle.
On a related note, I'm being tugged between two places even as I type this; I am supposed to be at a youth group lock-in, but suddenly remembered my hostessing duties here. So, please forgive me for posting a bit early. As the heading states, it's Saturday somewhere.
Advent feels liturgically appropriate for this period in my life. This is the season when we acknowledge that while we wait for a greater peace, a greater hope, a greater joy...we are still here. We exist in tension.
So, what message are you bringing your people this week? And how can we help each other bear good news?
(The coffee and good food is a given. I'll see you in the morning, when I get back from youthville.)
