1. Sharon Rodgers delivered a superb sermon for the Advent season. Her subject? Patience. James 5: 7-10: "Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near. Beloved, do not grumble against one another, so that you may not be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the doors! As an example of suffering and patience, beloved, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord."
2. The Troxstar contacted me early in the afternoon and invited me to join him to watch the Pats and the Bears at Good Times. I had some cooking to take care of and then I motored down to meet him and the Pats were crushing the Bears so we pretty much quit watching the game and got down to the business of figuring out how to make the world a perfect place. I think we nailed it. Now if we could get everyone to follow our plan.
3. Daniel posted a recipe for Cold Ginger Chicken that grabbed my attention and I made it today. It was a great recipe and Molly and the Deke both enjoyed the dish. So did I.
