Not Prince Hamlet

"Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse."

Preachy-Teachy Tuesday

Tuesday, December 05, 2006

It's 10 past seven in the morning, and NPH should be well into his reading routine. But he's not. Instead he's been adding blogs to his RSS reader, deleting others, and watching the minutes tick by. All is not lost, though; we came upon a really thought-provoking post here.

This morning we're going over to the Salvation Army to lead morning devotions for the staff. We have no idea what to expect, and so preparation has been minimal. Since worship and teaching at the church is centering on Micah during Advent, NPH will most likely use the first seven verses of chapter one or the first 12 verses of chapter three as a starting point, and try to engage participants in a conversation about the text. These are people who work for an agency in the center of the city that, especially at this time of year, sees tremendous need and works hard to meet it; NPH wants to hear their experience, to watch them connect that experience to the voice of the prophet, and to learn from them.

Hopefully we won't make a fool of ourselves. Or, if we do, it'll be for the right reasons.
