A Few Thoughts on a Hot Thursday

1. Does anyone know a good poem about dancing with God? I have a baptism on Sunday and am thinking about preaching about baptism as an invitation to dance with God (per Psalm 30 "You have turned my wailing into dancing....")...in baptism God invites us into community, into relationship, into a holy life, a holy dance...which doesn't mean that life is rosey and easy, but it is a dance.

2. We are under a strong wind advisory with severe storms predicted. This often happens on these hot days when a cool front bumps up against a heat wave...

3. I'm liking the heat. It's great to be warm and in shorts.

4. I'm tired of rain. We've had a lot of it...
