For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9, NRSV)
It’s the Third Sunday of Lent, The One with the Fig Tree, and it’s time to talk about when bad things happen to good people, and how limited our thinking can tend to be when we try to make sense of things and tie them up in a neat package for our own peace of mind.
That’s my sermon; what’s yours?
Okay, maybe it’s not, but that’s what’s on my mind this early Tuesday morning! Let’s discuss what we’re thinking toward this coming Sunday. Join in whether you’re on lectionary or not!
