11th Hour Preacher Party: Better Than Crumbs Edition
Maybe if you think dogs are scary or revolting or just not that great, it wouldn't be so hard.
Maybe if you think it's bad practice to feed a dog at the table, and that is perfectly reasonable although I am known to break that perfectly reasonable rule at the least provocation, you wouldn't consider the possibility.
But lots of us would find it hard. They're so patient and sober. Surely we can find a little something for them?
If only tomorrow's gospel lesson were actually about the etiquette of feeding dogs at the table!
Instead we have a tough one that challenges people with high views of Our Lord to find a place of agreement with those who embrace the humanity of the man from Nazareth.
Also, that word he called the woman? Not so nice.
What's on your plate making crumbs for the dogs today? Join the party in the comments. Let us know what you're preaching, how you're handling the children's message and any challenges to your schedule and your writing. I've got some really good coffee (Starbucks Blonde), and I promise a run to The Holy Donut, where they have upgraded the Maple Glazed from out-of-this-world to Positively Heavenly. We'll be here until Saturday becomes Sunday, and we will get our sermons done!
