If you are following the Revised Common Lectionary you are probably pondering one or more of the readings from here.
I am not preaching this Sunday, for the first time in I don’t know when….but if I were I’d ponder the plumb line in Amos and somehow connect it to the tipping point in Mark where John get’s arrested, tried, and beheaded on the whim of the queen and her daughter, and a king who complies with such an unjust request.
I might wonder about how easy it is for us to tip one way or the other, to lose ourselves and compromise our principles and go against our values. I like to think that I strive to make better choices, but alas, I am human, too.
Maybe like me you are tired. It’s already been a long hot summer in my context, and it’s only the middle of July….
Or, maybe you are filled with inspiration and have some great ideas…
Where ever you are in your pondering, the preacher party is here to help, pray, support, commiserate, maybe inspire. Pull up a chair and let the party begin.
