I had a great time today preaching and presiding at the Lord's Supper. I preached on Luke 15 and the parable of the lost sheep. I spoke about how comfortable we get with the idea of "acceptable losses:" in war, in homelessness, in the hungry, and in losses to our environment. But to God there are no acceptable losses. God won't stop until God heals the whole world. We find meaning and a measure of peace in taking our part with God in the healing of the world.
I had a great time talking to Josh who is a worship leader there about his ministry at TLC and at a new ministry on Sunday nights. I hope I can come and hang out some Sunday Evening.
