Sunday mornings are a bit odd for me. I love worship, but getting to the opening of our worship time takes a bit of work. I go over my sermon, check my slides, set up our project and computer, make sure the heat it working, and then greet folks as they come into the building for Sunday School and Worship. It sounds like a lot of work, but it’s really not too bad. After many years I’ve got it down to a nice rhythm.
The number of tasks can leave me distracted, especially when I first head over to the sanctuary. I get lost in the task and take my eyes off the purpose. Today, however, I looked up and saw a reminder to slow down and pause. The Sun was streaming through one of our stained glass windows, and the combination of light and shadow reminded me again of both how beautiful they are and how deep is the theology they portray. I took a moment to appreciate the moment. Then, because I am who I am, I pulled out my iPhone and captured a photo in Lightroom Mobile.
