Good morning, gals and pals! Well, we are in the "dog days" of August officially now, lwhich usually means that it is hot and humid where I am. (But, why do they call them "dog days" anyway?) It's vacation season for a lot of us, and yet, Sunday keeps coming around, with texts that are comforting and challenging. "It is your father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom!" "Number the stars!" "Sell your possessions!" "Be dressed for action!" (this is just a sample) Is it either/or? Both/and?
Well, you get the idea. An early discussion of the texts and some creative ideas are featured here.
I have my famous blueberry pancakes to share, and fair trade coffee, fresh orange juice, and tea for you non-coffee drinkers out there. Let's start out with a good breakfast, some lively conversation. What are you preaching on? Hebrews? Isaiah? Are you in need of a children's sermon?
