After the sermon, our son (16) and i waited our turn at the end of the line to talk to the Pastor.
Finally, it was our turn…
“We sat in the last row, as a compromise between our son not wanting to come and me wanting to be in the front row.”
Shared that a week ago, in the same row, we didn’t feel anything (bored, truth be told), but today we felt passion. With no offense or judgement to last week’s sermon (different Pastor).
i told Matt there were probably many who felt as i did but they probably take for granted that “Matt knows this” and never say a word.
“i just wanted to feed you.”
He was there to feed us. Yet there are no rules saying we can’t bring a meal ourselves to share.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
Father Ennis’s Sunday Homily was inspired by a Thomas Merton book, The Seven Storey Mountain. Googled it and read the Amazon book info.
There was an excerpt that captivated me.
Because if i was smart enough to come up with it, i’d share it and try to convince you to get a copy of my book.
I seek to speak to you, in some way, as your own self. Who can tell what this may mean? I myself do not know, but if you listen, things will be said that are perhaps not written in this book. And this will be due not to me but to the One who lives and speaks in both. – Thomas Merton, The Seven Storey Mountain
Book sales profits are so tiny, it’s literally not worth the effort.
