arrrrrrrrrrgh!!!

Ever hear the joke:

Jesus and Satan have agreed to have it out once and for all, and having decided that the whole armies-of-angels-versus-armies-of-fallen-angels thing has gotten trite, they settle on dueling it out by technological means: the first one to post a full entry to their blog wins.

They race to their keyboards and start typing furiously. After a couple of minutes, though, the lights flicker, and then go out for a couple of seconds before coming back on again -- a power short of some kind. Serious swearing is heard from Satan's corner even after the lights go on, and then Jesus leaps to his feet victorious, having successfully posted his entry while Satan is just starting to rewrite the beginning of his.

And you know why Jesus won the contest?

Jesus saves.


Yes, that's my way of saying that I just lost my whole frickin' blog entry for this week, and that after being delayed by a nasty stomach bug of some kind earlier in the week. It's all worked out in my head, so it should go up very soon indeed -- and this time, as I type, I'll save my work as I go.

In the meantime, if you're preaching on the readings for All Saints' Day instead of those for Proper 27, you might find helpful this sermon on Matthew's beatitudes and/or this sermon on Luke's beatitudes and woes.

See you again soon -- probably tonight.
