Reading others’ blogs this week has been more of a trial than usual. So many of my favorite bloggers were able to go to the Pepperdine Lectures, and I couldn’t. I went last year, for the first time, and would gladly make it an annual event if it weren’t for the timing.
This weekend was my daughter’s eleventh birthday party.
My involvement minister was in Tennessee to close on his old house there.
My preaching minister, singles minister and our Family Life Center manager all went to Pepperdine.
I look forward to hearing their reactions to it.
I am also looking forward this morning to a worship hour at my home church which focuses solely on meeting Christ at His table.
As far as I know, it will be a traditional celebration with small portions and forward-facing pews. It won’t and can’t be all that you or I or anyone else might yearn for.
At the same time, I believe – as I commented on Mike Cope’s blog recently – if we give our hearts to the table in whatever setting we find it, Jesus will change us there and draw us closer to His own heart.
