Purcell put Sam and Prince out to pasture

Just east of the entrance to Hillside Cemetery in Purcell, Oklahoma -- about fifty miles from my home -- there's a monument with this inscription: "In these hallowed grounds lie Sam and Prince, two horses, the pride of Purcell's Fire Department."

The memorial, dedicated in 1987, pays tribute to Sam and Prince for their faithful service to this central Oklahoma town from 1905 until 1920, when Purcell bought its first motorized fire truck and put the two horses out to pasture.

Not only did Sam and Prince help the volunteer fire department put out wildfires that

Good morning whoever is out there.

I hope you boys and girls are here this morning. Since I can't see you, let me know if you are actually present. (have the children touch and/or speak and/or sing) (Humor works, like have the children repeat something silly like, “Good morning fantastic, awesome, most highest lord pastor/teacher”)

Job 42:1-6,10-17
It is not Job’s or our deep faith which leads to faith and repentance. Famed 20th-century Reformed theologian Karl Barth made that clear:
Frank Ramirez
Most translations have it wrong. Job doesn’t repent in dust and ashes. He repents from dust and ashes, turning away from a false view of life, and turning toward a positive image of humanity.

In Hebrews we’re called to turn away from a false view of the need for the Temple. In Mark we turn away from a false view of defining people by a disability.

Job 42:1-6, 10-17 and Psalm 34:1-8, (19-22)

The Village Shepherd

I remember going to a Lent group years ago, where the priest gave all us lay folk a piece of paper and a pen and asked us to write down what we knew about Jesus. He didn't want us to write down what we'd been told about Jesus or read about Jesus, but simply what we knew for ourselves from our own experience.

I ended up with a blank sheet of paper, but one person wrote, "I know that Jesus saves me." That led onto an interesting discussion along the lines of: saves you from something? Or for something?
