Good morning, gals and pals! I was tempted to post a picture of some donuts here this morning, or perhaps sweet rolls, or a piece of cake, but instead I decided to include a piece of art by the Japanese Artist Sadao Watanabe. This one is Christ and the Devil. I found it here. I have been thinking a lot about Japan lately (I spent three years there many years ago), and those thoughts are seeping into my thoughts about Jesus and his temptation in the wilderness.
What about you? What thoughts are seeping into your worship preparation today and as we enter the season of Lent? Where is your preaching leading you? What are your temptations? Feel free to ask for ideas on a children's message, and weigh in on other Lenten issues as well. Also, if you need inspiration, please don't hesitate to check the conversation here
I am making blueberry pancakes (again). I am a creature of habit, after all. I hope you enjoy them. Please come for breakfast, stay for lunch and take many breaks with us to inspiration, sustenance, bread in the wilderness.
