What You Learn In The Summer
By the time you are done doing that it is about 6:15 and it's getting to be time for dinner and you want to change out of your church clothes and eat something and maybe read a little bit, and that's it.
And that counts as a whole day, even if you didn't read or study or respond to any crises or talk on the phone (except for half hour to a friend who's going through a terrible divorce) or go to a meeting or think deep thoughts (although you did read a little bit of Bonhoeffer in the bathtub) or do anything particular on behalf of world peace or global warming.
You learn in the summertime that you are still are a beloved child of God, even if you didn't do much but go to church and IKEA and eat some ice cream.
Ain't that-a good news.
