I hadn't realized how tired I was until Rest and Bread tonight. I wasn't especially tired in Maine, despite getting less than eight hours of sleep a night, but I got back and I stayed up a bit too late Sunday night and I've been getting decent but not great amounts of sleep since, and work has been consistently busy (after three months of doing nothing), especially today (especially since I'm in Colorado the remaining two days this week).

Rest and Bread

Psalm 144:9-15
Sacred Text: Mark 7:9-23
(Ari, I can't believe Rev.S. doesn't wanna preach on the "not what goes in but what comes out" passage.)
Keith did the Reflection.
He talked about how Jesus was frequently transgressing purity laws, including those around gender and sex. His second point was that Jesus' listeners would have understood "heart" to include more than just emotion, it would have also included knowledge and other things we today associate with the brain. He said that good intentions don't guard against doing ill, and it's easy for us to fall into patterns of behavior without thinking, especially the patterns of the society we're in.

Afterward, I was telling Laura Ruth that I'm going to Colorado tomorrow ("Reconciling Ministries Network Convocation -- the GLBT & Allies segment of the United Methodist Church -- Tiffany calls it "gay camp," but I say it can't be because I went two years ago and enjoyed it, and I don't like camp") and she said, "Have fun with all the queerdos. I hope you get a date." I laughed.

    So, it started snowing around 2 yesterday. Having something called “Spring” Break in March in New England is rather a joke. When we were having that…
