So sorry for the horrible eclipse joke that didn't even make any sense! I think the sleep deprivation is starting to get to me. Regardless, this is one of my favorite passages to preach on - I love thinking about how the Body of Christ comes alive in local churches!

Hi friends ... I don't know about the rest of you, but I am humbled by the inadequacy of words right now. I don't know how to reflect on what happened in Charlottesville this weekend and yet I know my silence is deafening and part of the problem right now.
I thought about scrapping my sermon and starting over last night, but ultimately I decided to address what happened in Charlottesville at the beginning of the service and in my pastoral prayer. Next week is Beatles Sunday at church and Jordan and I are planning weaving the theme of Love Wins throughout the service. It won't change anything that happened, but maybe it will inspire us all to continue to fight to resist the evil, hatred and racism in the world.
Have a great week, everyone.
It felt so great to be back in the pulpit yesterday after nine weeks of maternity leave! I preached on the feeding of the multitude, filled the altar with bread and we feasted on it afterwards. As always, the full text is available on my blog, www.preachinginpumps.com.
