November 1, 2009 Isaiah 25:6-9 A few years ago someone gave me a book of short stories by Michael Lindvall, a Presbyterian pastor who writes about life in the fictional town of North Haven, Minnesota. They are stories told from the perspective of the Reverend Battle, pastor of a local church in that little one-horse, backwater town, a place that has seen better days.

November 22, 2009 Psalm 126 In just a couple days, a pilgrimage of sorts will happen all across this great nation of ours, as people will load up their cars and make their way across town or across the state or up to the airport to fly to some distant place where they’ll stick their knees under a table surrounded by oddball relatives, tables piled high with food we pretty much eat only once a year.
