Self-Serving
by David O. Bales
Psalm 112

As God's people we have a choice to make about what sort of covenant we want to live with. In Jeremiah the Lord compares what the people received under divine leadership and guidance, and what awaits those who choose gods that are not gods. The author of Hebrews reminded the people of just how scary that whole Mount Sinai business was and how disastrous the results compared to the boldness in which we approach the living temple and the lamb of God.

The wedding season starts around Easter each year, heats up during June, July and August, begins to quiet down during September and is usually finished by October. It can become quite hectic if most Saturday afternoons of the three summer months are taken up with weddings, but they are usually fun to conduct and a real privilege for the priest.
