Daily Lectionary with Prayers
and Reflections on Scripture and World
It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Appeal on Church Sign
A country church on a state highway was trying to raise enough money to pay off the mortgage on its new Family Life Center. One of the favorites was selling tickets for catfish suppers, grilled hamburgers, even chitlins, once.
On their sign out front, the preacher would post:
Catfish Supper June 27, 5-7 p.m Cost $8 Isaiah 55:2
No one ever told her they thought the sign was funny or appropriate.
