In searching through the archives of Rev. Earl Fedderson’s devotions, I discovered that during the eight years he wrote them for the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod’s Board for Missions he did not write any for the 7th or 8th Sundays after the Epiphany of our Lord in Series A of the lectionary. Therefore, I have no devotion from Rev. Fedderson for this Sunday or the following Sunday. I apologize to everyone who looks forward to his thought provoking words but they will resume with a devotion for Transfiguration Sunday (this year March 2).
Meanwhile, we are experiencing heavy snow–the heaviest I have seen all winter–and most everyone has stayed home today. I thank God for computers and our current technology which allows us to work remotely from our offices and other places of employment.
Sadly though, my older confirmation class is once again missing a class this afternoon and now I’ve got to start thinking about how we can make up lost class time. This is our third class missed this year! That has got to be a record for me as I do not recall another winter that disrupted my classes like this one has. It will all work out in the end.
Finally, I officiated at a small wedding last evening at Christ the King for a lovely couple from our congregation. There was a small reception following at the home of the bride’s mother and one of the major topics of discussion was whether or whether not Britt and Duncan will make their flight this morning for California and the Napa Valley for their 4 day honeymoon. Their flight was scheduled to depart a couple of hours ago so I pray they were able to leave as planned. If not, I pray they enjoy the snow!
