Your God Keeps Interrupting

We had a dear friend visit us yesterday for worship.  Our choir enjoyed the voices of some of its newest members.  Also, we all learned there is a Transformer that turns into an ice-cream truck.  If all that wasn't enough, we shared in a celebration of Holy Communion.  An inspiring-at least for me-time of worship.

I wanted to incorporate the reading from 2 Peter, but it never made it into the discussion.  There was also a quote from C.S. Lewis I thought would have been something to consider:
"The great thing, if one can, is to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions of one’s “own,” or “real” life. The truth is of course that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one’s real life—the life God is sending one day by day; what one calls one’s “real life” is a phantom of one’s own imagination. This at least is what I see at moments of insight: but it’s hard to remember it all the time." The Quotable Lewis (Wheaton, IL.: Tyndale House Publishers, 1989), 335.

There's always material you leave out of a sermon. The mind, however, can only take in what the behind can bear. I think the Apostle Paul said that...or not.

If you are reading by email click here to listen to the sermon, and understand why there is a deja vu picture within this post, and understand why there is a deja vu picture within this post (get it?).

Stay blessed...john
