Summertime Friday Five
My friend Dorcas has finally posted today summertime FF. I have been wondering why no one had come up with a summer FF. I guess it is because it has only gotten warm in some of our climes:
So, what's up, Rev Gals and Pals? How are you spending your summer? (I know, some of you are in a different hemisphere and it may be chilly...sorry!) Are you experiencing fire or floods or tornados? Vacationing? Working harder than ever? Experiencing change? Longing for change?
Share five things that are happening in your life, personally or professionally or some of each, in this season of life.
Last week it was the marriage of Rebekah. (Yeah, and I am going to preach on marriage in TX the week after the NY state vote for same-sex marriage?? I don’t like the smell of tar in the morning.) This week it is the stealing of Esau’s birthright. I have often felt that the patriarchs and matriarchs of the Abrahamic religions needed to have some family systems therapy. So this week it is about seeds and where they fall. But do I really believe that God is a sower???
3. Heat: It is supposed to be 105 today and my blood is still Upstate NY thick. J can’t go swimming during chemo so there isn’t much to do except stay in the AC. Maybe a movie will kill the boredom.
