I've got that joy, joy, joy, joy...
Too much? Too busy?
We're right in the middle of that part of the season, aren't we? The part when the candles tell us we're supposed to pause for a time of rejoicing, but our calendars say, "WHAT?!?!?! PAUSE? REJOICE? Are you kidding?"
And now it's Saturday and the sermon is just around the corner. How are you preparing to bring God's work in your setting today? Or are you preparing for proclamation further down the line than that? Just looking at the Tuesday Lectionary Leanings shows we're kind of all over the Advent map in exciting and diverse ways. Don't let that keep you from stopping in and sharing where you are (or where you aren't) and what you may be looking for. Some of us are notorious for being better at helping others than we are at working on our own sermons!
The virtual cookie plate is full (even though the real one at my house is already empty). Grab your favorite and a mug of fair trade coffee/hot cocoa/tea. We're all here to hold the light for each other! Join us in the comments.
