I Get to Go to Work

October 26

In these difficult economic times I’m trying hard not to say, “I have to go to work.”  I’m trying to say, “I get to go to work.”  And on a day like this one I’m especially grateful that I get to go to work in a place that looks like this.  I took this picture from the sidewalk in front of 2709 Monument Avenue ten minutes ago.  And now? 

I’d better get to work.

  1. Congrats on your anniversary! Is ministry anything like you expected? For reflection on this anniversary, here is Martin Luther (from Table Talk):

    “A good preacher should have these properties and virtues:
    first, to teach systematically;
    secondly, he should have a ready wit;
    thirdly, he should be eloquent;
    fourthly, he should have a good voice;
    fifthly, a good memory;
    sixthly, he should know when to make an end;
    seventhly, he should be sure of his doctrine;
    eighthly, he should venture and engage body and blood,
    wealth and honor, in the Word;
    ninthly, he should suffer himself to be mocked and jeered of every one.”

  2. I’ve watched fall at FBC for 66 years now, and it’s always lovely — the beautiful fall colors with a bright October blue sky or a soft Irish mist — God’s world is a wonder, and it is good to be involved in a work one loves! For many years I drove down Monument Avenue on my way to work, and I always smiled as I passed FBC and thought of all the good memories associated with that corner! I’m glad we’re blessed with you, and you with the FBC community. Happy Autumn!
