A few words to offer today...

Awhile back someone (for the life of me I cannot recall who) blogged that the Church was not founded or called by Jesus to worship, but rather to work. His point being, which I understand, that too often we spend too much time worshipping and not enough working. I reckon it depends on the focus of the worship...in my AG past we seemed to define a "good" worship service as being based upon the extent of the euphoria experienced...though when asked at the time I'd vehemently deny this. However, all of this said...from today's Gospel reading at Matins from Saint Luke:

And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.

Indeed a worshiping community...and in the TEMPLE none-the-less! Tsk Tsk!


My daughter Kelsey is going to be celebrating her birthday soon (a few weeks early so as to avoid the Nativity Fast soon approaching) and she has decided (amazingly enough) that she has enough toys and such and so instead of gifts for her, she is asking her friends to bring gifts to be sent down to the Hogar Rafal Ayau Orphanage in Guatemala. Kelsey will be turning 6.
