I’m having a lovely lazy post Christmas week with the family but today I really do need to get my head around something to say on Sunday. Last minute.com sermon writing is not on. I love our folks here enough not to want to bore them to death. The trouble is I can’t get motivated. I shouldn’t be surprised. As with all holidays regular intentional prayer goes out the window because- ridiculously -it seems like work and I do need a break. It’s therefore no wonder that I have no inspiration or motivation. Entirely my fault for not showing up! So out of desperation I decided to pull out what I had written for Epiphany the last few years. It seems that last year I talked about the kings and the shepherds showing up. It seems such a small thing. They didn’t have to show up but they did. After all God didn’t have to show up but he did.
Hmmm…… New Years resolution. Show up. Be a bit more present. God might even show up too which would be really scary.
PS Happy New Year everyone.
