Fellowship of Saints and Sinners

“This Isn’t The Way It Was Supposed To Be”

“No, please! This is supposed to be a happy occasion! Let’s not bicker and argue about who killed who!” – Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Several days of listlessly lying around with the rest of the family, all of us having succumbed to the flu, has not produced any great mystical visions or deep thoughts.  In the absence of these, I’m grateful for a resource like the Episcopal Digital Network’s “Sermons That Work.”

The Rev. Dr. Joseph Pagano’s sermon for the second Sunday of Advent gives voice to what many of us have experienced, maybe most especially at this time of the year- that things are not as they were supposed to be.  I commend it to you.  (By the way, if you’re wondering why his name sounds familiar, it just so happens that the Joseph Pagano who wrote this sermon is the same Joseph Pagano who is married to Amy Richter of Saturday’s post.)

Tomorrow, another photo meditation in our Advent series, “Visio Divina” (“The Visual Word”).
