Good morning, gals and pals! I'll be posting this automatically when I go to bed tonight for all of you across the seas (and some who can't sleep.) This weekend some of us are continuing through Exodus; others are starting out in Paul's letter to the Thessalonians; and still others of us are with Jesus as he deftly deals with questions from the Pharisees and the Herodians. You can check out this week's texts here.
But all of us (well, almost all of us) are getting closer to Election Day, listening to debates, negative ads, news about the world economy, and fears about security. The exchange from Matthew sounds somehow eerily familiar. (Who's going to lower your taxes? Who's going to tax you more?) And does anyone here have plans to call upon "Joe the Plumber?"
This morning, I'll have blueberry pancakes for a change, with orange juice, as well as the familiar fair trade coffee and Good Earth Tea. If you are hunger, have a set. If you have something to share, you are also welcome. If you need to unload, complain, beat your head against a wall -- well, you can do that too. All are welcome. No matter which way you vote. Really.
