Blogging my latest intercessions, while I’m thinking of them.
Pentecost. I guess if you’re into superheroes, it’s a little like Shazam. And if you’re into horror movies… Oh wait, maybe that first Penetcost was kind of like this:
Having been lazy on the blogging front, it was hard to find common themes in this week’s readings. But, it’s like anything else. You have to write, and think, and pray, to be able to write, think, and pray. Or something like that. Anyway, I think this week introduces us to a God whose forgiveness just doesn’t make sense. And we couldn’t be any luckier.
Posting intercessions that I wrote a few weeks ago. I’ve fallen so far behind in posting. It makes me sad, but lately I just can’t seem to catch up. Hopefully soon. But happily, I’m learning so much in these weeks!
Dang! It’s been about forever since I’ve posted. So much is happening with candidacy and serminary application, that I can’t quite find it in me to spare the mental bandwidth to write here.
Come to think of it, I guess I haven’t been serving as assisting minister much in a while, either. But, it leaves space for others to start serving, and that’s important to me. I’m very taken with the thought that we’re all equally means of grace for each other. And I can sure use some grace!
Kind of a quick reflection this week, since I’ve been busy working on my upcoming sermon. Hopefully there are some provocative thoughts in here that might give you food for thought this week. Have a blessed Christmas!
The first Sunday of Advent! A new church year. Coming off the craziness of Thanksgiving, it’s hard for me to be emotionally present in the start of the season. This week’s readings seem scattershot at first, but then I started to see some common threads that stand out to me. Most surprisingly, that our God is not like other gods. It’s almost like being in doctrine class. Anyway, I hope you might find something meaningful in my post for this week.
