11th Hour Preacher Party: Love on My Mind
It's May Day, a time for flowers and planting or maybe just cutting the grass, which heaven knows is needed at my house. We're coming up on proms and graduations and Confirmations and weddings and all sorts of new commitments and ventures.
I'll be spending the morning with twelve 8th graders, making a video about their thoughts on some components of our denomination's Statement of Faith. So add to the list of events a list of needs: doughnuts and muffins and fruit and orange juice, newsprint and markers, and don't forget the Flip camera!
Also, don't forget the coffee for the teacher and the preachers!
In the midst of a busy season it's easy to focus on the tasks and lose sight of the reason for them. It's a crucial time to have love on our minds, embracing love that makes all things new.You can find the lectionary texts here.
What do you have on the calendar today? In the midst of it, don't forget to show your love here in the comments. I'll bring you the Confirmation leftovers, if we have any. (Those twelve students? Are two girls and TEN boys.)
