Good morning, gals and pals! After a short sabbatical, I'm back in the preacher-party saddle today, bringing you breakfast (Muffins? Oatmeal? Blueberry pancakes? I'm here to serve) and encouragement in your homiletical and last-minute-worship-planning endeavors.
I've got the fair trade coffee on (the only kind my step-son will drink), and and also hot water for Good Earth Tea. I'm actually not preaching today, but I peeked at the texts (had a Bible study on Wednesday), and am musing about impossible things, like camels going the the eye of a needle, rich people getting into the kingdom of God, the Twins winning the world series. (But all things are possible with God, right?)
Perhaps you are musing on the double-edged nature of the scriptures, or you are shaking your fist with Amos, or you are questioning with Job. Where are you this morning, where are you flashes of insight, where are your struggles? Pull up a chair. There's always room for one more.
Today, I will be checking in periodically from the Celebration of Faith and Writing. Blessings to all.
