It seems I am making it a habit to miss Sundays, so I’m just not going to worry about it any more. 🙂
I liked the sermon at HT yesterday, talking about fly fishing and religion. 🙂 It made us wonder if we could perhaps tie in vacations for Episcopal priests with one of the local fly fishing companies to get supply priests in once in a while. 🙂 But what was great was the concept that you applied the lessons in fishing – learning the habits of the fish, what they ate, where they hung out, etc. – to fishing for people. Meet each person on their own ground and comfort zone to introduce them to Christ. And then, of course, the catch and release method. 🙂
This was followed by the annual and vestry meetings, so I didn’t make it to DoH this week, unfortunately. I’ll have to pick up a copy of the sermon next week.
James 1:5: “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”
Tao: “The wise man is one who, knows, what he does not know.”
I’ve been praying for wisdom for dealing with one of my sons. And I was reminded through a sarcastically meant comment that my son is a grown man, responsible for his own decisions and consequences, good and bad, and that if I’m not asked for advice, I need to not give it. No matter how much I think the other person might benefit from what I might have to say. Again, stillness, silence – there is value in those attributes that I apparently need to practice more. 🙂
Along with listening.
