11th Hour Preacher Party: Locusts and Wild Honey Edition
or wait, is that wild locusts and honey?
Anyway, it's quite a breakfast for our 2 Advent preacher party!
We're moving into week 2 of our Advent season. Special guest? John the Baptist. Special food? Locusts and wild honey. Or, if you'd like, blueberry pancakes and fair trade coffee.
Today, we're featuring several themes (besides food): there's road construction, repentance, comfort, and waiting. There's the day of the Lord, and the patience of God. You could be preparing the way with John, in the wilderness with the exiles, or waiting for 1,000 years with Peter. Or, something else entirely.
Where are your advent wanderings taking you? What are you singing? What are you praying? What are you writing? And what are you eating?
Be sure to check on this good discussion on the texts here.
And be sure to join the party throughout the day. Do not be glum, even if you are eating locusts and wild honey. After all, I hear that some parts are edible.....
