The start of a new week.

Tonight I have the Church Council meeting - always a challenge!  I am hoping beforehand to spend some time preparing for the Lent Bible Study on Wednesday.  This week it is the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant.  The one where a servant who is forgiven a massive debt goes out and insists on collecting a relatively small one.  We Christians are not always the most forgiving of people.  The key I am sure is to have a better sense of just how much we have been forgiven.  Not easy in a cultural climate that minimizes the seriousness of personal sin.  It is unlikely we will ever appreciate how much we have been forgiven when we have no sense that what we have done was all that wrong in the first place.

But before that there is a mound of stuff from the weekend that must be dealt with as must the people who are coming to do the annual maintenance of the air-conditioning system.

Church Council, administration, building maintenance, and thinking about forgiveness.  It's one way to start the week!  I hope yours is good.
