Super B...est friend.


Me:
"I just can. not. understand. why people care SO much about who wins a football game."

Mary:
"Oh, you can too. Think about how you feel watching Grey's Anatomy. 
Or reading Little Women.
We care about fictional characters dying;
they care about football.
It's like a story for them...
the story of... a team. Or something."

One, I just love her.




Two, that actually did really make the whole sports thing make more sense to me.


Me knitting while "watching" the game with friends last night.

"Do the things! Win the points!"

I am so the same way.....I don't get it why there is so much hype about the super bowl, but hey if you got to spend some good quality time with some friends that's ok too..:)

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.

Amen.
