Thanks Be To God

I am very grateful for an open congregation that welcomes new approaches and is willing to try new things, even when that means getting up out of one's pew to visit worship centers. Yesterday's worship was different and it appeared that the only people who didn't engage the centers (beyond the visual one) were the three folks over 90.

It was a lot of work and the sermon this week will feel easier I think. But first a service of dedication for educators and students on Wednesday. Bubble wrap being provided to dance away the apprehensions for the year ahead, and a "blessing of the backpack" to start us off right. (Or as someone said, to exorcise the demons from past years.)

It is nice that today feels so fresh outside. Now to live with driving the truck (standard transmission) and hope I'm after the worse of the traffic.
