thank you Mark Allan Powell. Finally a really relevant concept of waiting in today's world. In the linked article on WorkingPreacher.org, Powell makes the connection to the way lovers wait for each other. I think it is finally an image that needs few words after it is said.
Or so I hope.
tomorrow we decorate the sanctuary and I'm off to a friend's open house. But I trust that the words and questions for the congregation will evoke a bit of what I felt when I read Powell's piece. Are you in love? How do you wait?
(I wait only a few day for my husband to return from the hunt club. But it's still a loving waiting.)
