11th Hour Preacher Party: Tapping the Tree Edition
This morning my son and I will visit a farm a bit north of here where the family has been tapping maple trees all week. I read that it takes 40 gallons of maple sap to make *1* gallon of maple syrup! It reminded me of the way we prepare our sermons: many hours of study, conversation, contemplation and writing, in varying proportions, distilled into 12-20 minutes (what, you preach longer?!?!!) devoted to sharing the sweetness of the Good News with our congregations.
Where will you be today? What will become part of your proclamation?
Stop by and have some pancakes, with real maple syrup! Coffee, tea, or maybe a glass of milk for me.
Many thanks to Sally for posting this despite the desire of Blogger to label us as Spyware,
