Last Sunday the gospel was about Abraham and how after many year of being without children God promised himt hat he would have as many descendants as the stars in the sky and be the founder of a nation. So in their declining years Abraham and Sarah had Isaac.

Now maybe I am mistaken, but didn't Abraham also take to his bed, because his wife was baren, a servant girl who bore him a son, Ishmael? And Ishmael "founded" Islam?

So, then if Abraham fathered both the nation of the Jews and the nation of Muslims then why are they fighting? Sibling rilvary?

Makes no sense to me.

too much bad news

A friend told me today that her son was laid off Friday. He just got married in Sept. Luckily his wife is working at least for now, but that's an iffy situation because she is a nurse and they may close down the hospital where she works.

And I got a phone call from another friend who wanted prayers for her ex-husband's wife, who was found unconcious in the bathroom this evening. They thought she had a heart attack at first, but tests proved that it was not. Now they think she may be brain dead.

This is not turning into a very Merry Christmas season at all.

sox and underware

We gather the names of parishioners to help them out at Christmas. We got a call from a woman raising 3 kids on her own, who is out of work. We told her we could help by providing one "clothing" gift to each of her children.

Do you know what she asked for for her twin 7 year old daughter and 16 year old son?

Sox and underware.

You know the economy is bad when you have to ask a charity or church to provide you with the basics of clothing for your kids and when those kids will be GREATFUL to recieve sox and underware for Christmas.
