I have only three photos to share from this weekend. They may be few, but they are mighty 🙂
The sun was out on Saturday and it was lovely. I took a solo morning walk to the lake. Solo is key for capturing these kinds of #blueskyblooms.
Marc played golf and I indulged in some quality time with myself and a few magazines. I was reminded how much I love baths and bubbles! I think my last bath was last February, when we were in Los Cabos (the bubbles and the room were infused with the same scent and it was … wonderful).
All that alone time was wonderful preparation for yesterday’s Gifts of Women service(s) (we have two service each Sunday, one at 9:30 and one at 11:00). I only had a speaking part at the 11:00 service, but was there for both, just to be sure everything ran smoothly (and of course it did).
The pastor who led the service offered a moving sermon, titled “Crossing Boundaries”. I heard the sermon twice and was just as moved the second time. This line especially resonated with me
When God nudges us outside our comfort zones, amazing things can happen. ~ Reverend Caitlin Phillips
She opened her sermon talking about how she’s taken up a new hobby – researching personalities … Myers-Briggs and the Enneagram. It was a nice segue into my afternoon (a little more quiet time after five hours of “on” time at church!) with The Sacred Enneagram.
(as I typed this, I wondered what type Emily Dickinson was … apparently there’s an answer … and another podcast episode to add to my queue!)
A few weeks back I promised to share the bulletin insert “we” (mostly Caitlin and Katie, our very talented Communications Director) compiled. Here you go
I love that “Of course they may be right” mantra (and who knows … maybe I’ll even try it!) But mostly I love being part of a church that embraces and celebrates differences.
and taking that last bullet to heart, I hope your week is off to a “pizza start”!
