The Odd Couple

Dear friends in Christ, grace and peace. Amen

I miss my Dad.

I miss my mother in law as well.

I am thinking about both of them this morning. In fact, there is hardly a day that goes by that I don’t think about one or both of them. I miss their on-going presence in my life and the lives of my children. I am sad they are no longer here to see what my children are up to.

Who do you miss?

Who are you thinking about this morning on All Saints?

The People’s Choice Awards

For those of you who are tuned into popular culture around movies, music and television, I don’t count myself in that crowd; I just ask Pastor Torgerson or the current intern if I have a question, you are familiar with the People’s Choice Awards.

“The People’s Choice Awards celebrates fan favorites in movies, music and television and is the only major awards show where real people – not industry insiders – determine the nominees and winners, setting it apart from other awards show.” [1]

You may not know this but the bible has its own version of the People’s Choice Awards. That’s right.

Get On Board

Dear friends in Christ, grace and peace. Amen
Today we kick off our 4th year of using the narrative lectionary. If you are not familiar with what a lectionary is, it is the readings from the bible we use every Sunday. The narrative lectionary starts in Genesis and we will work our way thru the Old testament until Xmas and then the Gospel of Matthew thru Easter.
We begin the story not with creation but with Noah and the great flood. God is having second thoughts about creation; especially human beings. That alone shouldn’t surprise any of us but what God decides to do about it is a bit of a surprise.

A Practical Faith

Dear friends in Christ, grace and peace. Amen.
Webster defines practical in this way – pertaining to practice or action; or capable of being turned to use or account; useful, in distinction from ideal or theoretical.
But you already knew that didn’t you.
Practical is something you can use and put into action.
Practical is helpful, hands on, not theoretical or abstract.
