It's quite a lectionary week, isn't it? We've got a character from Judges whose name is almost like the President-Elect's (and thankfully a story ending short of tent pegs), and the day of the Lord coming like labor pains--ouch!!-- and a Psalm about masters and servants that reminds me how different our society is from the world of the Bible, and a parable so familiar and yet so inscrutable that people in our church Bible Study said, for the second week in a row, "That doesn't sound like MY Jesus!"
Will we wind up in the outer darkness? Or can we help each other to find the way to the joy of the Master?
Let us know what you have on your plate today; share a good idea for a children's message if you have one, we always like those!
I'm posting this late Friday night, but I'll be back early with virtual coffee and danish for everyone.
