Three French hens.

December 27, 2013

‘3 is a magic number…’ (Sings Jack Johnson) Stands for ‘reduce reuse recycle…’ And today is recycling day. The bins on the curb have been collected (noisily!) and much of the detritus of the past week has gone to be made new once more.

3 is a perfect number, biblically speaking. 3 is also the number of points associated with a sermon… And as I start to think about blogging more consistently about preaching here is a blog of 3 points….. (1 was the magic number thing, 2 is the acknowledgement that sermons often have 3 points and 3 comes next)

John Hall @deanwestminster @wabbey tweeted this morning: “St John the Evangelist (his feast today) draws all followers of Christ to see ourselves as Beloved Disciples. Thank God for his beautiful work!” I wonder how easy it is to feel like beloved disciples? I am taking the 12 days as my headings… And, even as the song goes, “my true love sent to me” we sit now in the Christmas season, remembering as Gods people, our true – our truest – love; sent to us, sent for us, sent by God, because of God’s love for us, His creation. So surely we can see a glimmer, we can glimpse (@RuthMGee) Gods glory and begin to know that we, even we, can see ourselves as beloved. And to remind us: from St. John… “For God so loved the world”.

Three. God is with us. We are made new. We are so loved.

Ok so that doesn’t flow perfectly. This isn’t meant to be perfect, it’s a blog! And anyhow, now I need to go and play with walkie-talkies, ukelele’s and other such gift delights! 🙂
