Good morning, preachers, wherever you are!
It's been a busy week here, and my mind has been on other things, so I really need the encouragement of community today. How about you?
This picture from the Gulf Coast (before Hurricane Katrina) reminds me of the Isaiah passage in the lectionary today. If we look at tomorrow's texts not only as a story about Jesus but as a call to all of us, as individuals and as churches, what justice might we be expected to bring, what teachings might the coastlands await?
But first, coffee, and lots of it. May I pour you a cup?
Whether you are an 11th hour regular, or a first-time visitor, or anything in between, please join us in the comments today. Let us know what's on the schedule today, what you are preaching about, what else might be going on in church tomorrow. Anyone looking for a Children's Moment? Anyone have one?
And friends, if you've already finished your sermon, try not to rub our noses in it too early in the day, okay? ;-)
Let the Party begin!
