Prayer, Wednesday July 15, 2015

St. Paul’s Cycle of Prayer – Wednesday – Paul’s Place after school program and the St. Paul’s Day School
Today I decided to say Evening Prayer for a little variety. Sitting on my balcony overlooking the intracoastal (yes I am blessed), trying to enjoy every minute I can as my time in South Florida winds down, and still reflecting on General Convention and the really good feeling I have about our church, I was thrilled to read tonight’s gospel from the 2nd chapter of Mark, which includes (hey, was this sentence long enough for you by the way?): 

22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost, and so are the skins; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins.”

Are you listening, people of God, people of the church? Fresh wineskins. Bring it.
