Wednesday Festival: Life and All That

Good morning all! Sorry for the lack of a Wednesday Festival last week - I am responsible for this feature, and haven't gotten a schedule for the new year done yet! :P

We do have some great submissions, so on to it now!

Mrs. M. is reflecting on how she uses her home, and her ponderings brought up a corresponding post from Gannet Girl. She would really enjoy other Rev Gal and Pal reflections on the topics of liturgical and home space, so please share them in the comments (or at your own blog, with a link back here).

Singing Owl is in the middle of a week of prayer and fasting (so sorry that this wasn't posted earlier!). She invites you to read about it at her place and leave a one-sentence prayer request for yourself in the comments. She'll compile them and then pray for each one each day during that week. I hope it's not too late!

Sally shares some icy photos and news of her stationing (new church assignments!) Great news.

Pinkhammer posted "Another First for the Nation," about Rev. Sharon Watkins being selected to give the U.S. Inaugural Sermon. Great to read about how this intersects with her story as well. In another Inauguration piece, Sally is thinking about it from "across the pond."

Christine kindly invites us to the latest Poetry Party at the Abbey of the Arts.

Many blessings on you this day. If you have other great posts to share (your own or those of other RGBP ring members) please let us know in the comments!



    For many people the day January 20, 2009, date on which Mr. Barack Obama assumes the presidency of the United States, becomes an historic day.

    It is the first time an African-American becomes the leader of one of the most powerful nation in the world.
    A crowd of people were present to see Mr. Obama assume the presidency, perhaps motivated by seeing the man who fed hopes of a nation immersed in a strong moral and economic depression.
    Pastor Rick Warren began the ceremony with a prayer that really leave much to be desired. But with more gold inspiracion who was an elderly friend Reverend Luther King and who won the embrace of the president.
    The new president's speech was very realistic but little motivator, something overshadowed by the cold of minus 6 degrees and the nuance that Hollywood was given to the act.
    However, it was clear to see there faces as well as cheerful and enthusiastic, also faces serious surrounding the president Obama.
    One such face is that of former president George Bush, representing the major groups in power, and that will be closely watching Obama's intentions.
    Another of the faces in the government of Israel, who is not looking to grace a descendant of the Muslim as president.
    Other faces are the rulers of Arab nations, which do not look at Obama as an ally for them.
    As finishing touch, faces no shortage of traditional segregationist groups, who are offended to hear that the same God in the eyes of whites and blacks.
    Undoubtedly, the president Barack Obama is sitting in a chair where the sword of Damocles hanging over his head.
    I hope that the Christian churches in the United Esrtados not cease to pray for their president for the American people and themselves.
