Anybody else just burned out yet? In the mornings sometimes, while dropping my youngest off at school, we'll make a quick flip over to 106.7 FM to hear a Christmas tune. Even my eleven-year-old agreed that it felt better to just turn the radio off altogether the other day. Like some probably unscientific study I heard, Christmas music in the background has the adverse effect of causing stress instead of spreading joy. I don't know if that's true, but it definitely didn't feel true to me at eleven years old.

Advent is the church's relationship with time. Probably, were you to ask what bothers the world most about Christianity, asuuming a world still capable of disciplined critical thinking (I have my doubts), on the short list would be the embarrassment of time.

I awoke this morning thinking about the concept of dialogue. As with all sermons, it's impossible to cover everything and to chase all rabbits. One I wish time would've allowed on Sunday is this idea of dialogue.

We talked about it in worship. We participated in it during The Lord's Supper. Today is All Saints Day.
