Weekly preparations for sunday messages are hard work. We tried some more interactive elements since the year began. We tried quite a bit last year too then fizzled out a bit. It’s harder work when I want to encourage more active “participation” from the congregation.
I’m also “fine tuning” much of my thinking in many other areas of BLC this month. Besides that, other little interuptions crop up .. one or two irritations as well … and other stuff I want to do. I’m surely on the move until I can almost feel the hair dropping as far as loading the thinking faculties is concerned, physically and emotionally there are substantial demands as well and I can feel my heart yearning for contemplation. It’s Moving WITH the Messiah not just Moving! I’m reminding myself .. I think He just said STOP. Pause and listen.
