Greetings Narrative Lectionary Preachers!

Since there are options in what texts to pick for the summer, I thought I would give you a heads up on the direction I am going.  I appreciate you taking this ride with me, and the input and feedback I have received.  All very helpful! (As well from the RLC folks too! Don’t want to leave you out!!).

As you can tell, they are the suggested texts from Luther Seminary, and I am going with the Wisdom/Proverbs fork in the road over the Creeds.  Then moving on to Hebrews.  So here are the texts I will be using for the summer months:

5/31: Psalm 1 (Introduction)

Greetings Saints!

Another post that, while isn’t directly DSCS related, it really ends up being just that.  For you see, Jim Drury was an inspiration to me and always pushed me to do my best.  No, not just my best, but my creative best.  And I loved him for it.

I head off to Price, Utah in just a little while to say, “See you in a while,” to a dear friend. I have known Jim for a while now, and from the time we met each other, to the present, we became fast friends. Jim was a friend that I talked to daily, and could ask advice about everything under the sun. And he was a straight shooter, and I cherished this about him.

The photo below captures Jim so well, and I love the advice given to him by Linda, his love.
