If This Sounds Familiar, Good!

July 16, 2020

I have a lot of questions about many of the things in the news lately. You, too?

People I care about maintain hard positions on both extremes of a couple of those current topics and situations. You, too?

Some are also well entrenched with their minds firmly made up. You, too?

Most of the time I tend to land somewhere in the middle, depending upon what we’re talking about. You, too?

Meanwhile, I’m simply trying to adhere to three New Testament verses these days —

If it is possible,

as far as it depends on you,

live at peace

with everyone

(Romans 12:18)


Work out your own salvation

with fear and trembling

(Philippians 2:12)


Worry about nothing,

pray about everything.

(Philippians 4:6).

— Seem to be some growing edges there for me. You, too?

And if this sounds familiar, good! It’s based on some things I wrote to the recipients of my weekly “At Homer” pastoral letter and my column in our church newsletter last month.

And a month later, it’s no surprise that there still seem to be some growing edges for me. You, too?
