The coffee is steeping. Can coffee steep? I mean, it's all ground up and floating in water in the french press. I guess one could call that steeping. Interesting. I've never thought of it as steeping. On steeps tea. One brews coffee. But perhaps this is steeping coffee...huh.
I am still congested. It's ugly. I'm able to work and I guess that's a good thing. Heh. Today's to do list consists of one item: prepare the sermon. Usually by this time in the week I have had time to muddle through the lectionary a few times. The headcold, however, has kept me from doing this with any degree of cogency. What I know is that we are celebrating the Feast of All Saints (not Souls) on Sunday. Yes, I moved it. It's a communion Sunday as well. So, the sermon needs not be 15 - 20 minutes. We'll see what happens.
I'm thinking about saints. That's all I have thus far. You? Here are the readings: Revelation 7:9-17; 1 John 3:1-3; Matthew 5:1-12.
a prayer from Taize
Holy Spirit, breath of the love of God, within each person you place faith. It can only be a quite simple trust, so simple that everyone can receive it.
