This week the Lectionary sent me into a consideration of blessings. Blessings, we all want them; we all enjoy providing them. What can anyone really say about blessings? Well, I think there are a couple of things we need to keep in mind about blessings. Depending on which sermon you listen to the first, one thing is to be bold to bless and the second is to be patient when waiting for God’s blessing.
The content is very similar between the two messages but the order is reversed. I don’t think I have ever done this before so if you are able or inclined I would be very interested to hear what you think.
