She So Funny

Some of you know that rather than lectionary, my congregation has been working its way through Year of the Bible. We have assigned readings each week and I have been preaching on something from those assigned readings.

This Sunday I will be telling the congregation that TDH has moved out of the house. They will not be getting all of the details but of course people are people and so tongues will wag.

Because of God's truly unique and varied sense of humor one of the passages I could select to preach on - believe it or not - is James 3... taming the tongue.

I sure will have a lot to think about on my 50 mile MS Ride.

isn't that the deal... irony can be soooo ironic!

And yet so aptly appropriate

Hope it goes well--the sharing, the bike ride, teh sermon.

It sounds like you have your sermon topic, so go with it.

yes, lorna you are correct. I think the 10 commandments would have been fun for TOW to read or maybe even Ezekial 16... not that I'm angry or anything.

Psalm 121 is also this week.

The Lord will watch over your going out and your coming in....
Mmmnn
Could work either way, but on the whole I think it's a blessing on you as you do the ride.
And DEFINITELY preach on James.
We're rooting for you ]*

Sometimes I really think there is a Holy Spirit out there and active in our lives and world. Really. (I mean to believe such a thing goes against all "logic" in this world, and then you have something like this "happen" and it just makes me wonder...).

So, if that's the case (that there is a HS active) then, well, somehow, someway, all will be well. (Julian Norwich said some 700 years ago, all will be well, all will be well, in all manner of things, all will be well)...

that is my prayer for you...that in all manner of things, all will be well.

And, good luck with the ride. My FIL had MS, and one of my good friends and colleagues has MS.

Blessings to you on the ride. My partner continues to live with this unpredictable and often cruel disease. We appreciate the efforts of fund-raising events such as this one more than we can adequately express.

Blessings also for Sunday with the sharing and the sermon.

I'll be thinking of you on Sunday and sending prayers up. May the Holy Spirit fill you with the words that will bind you and your congregation together, and may their be no wagging of anything other than pets' tails.
