Yesterday morning I wrote my "God in the ER" post. Yesterday evening, I hammered out a draft of my homily for Sunday, writing four and a half double-spaced pages in about three and a half hours. I'll post that tomorrow, after final edits.
I was going to write a post today about the theology of volunteering, but instead I'm going to take a break, because coherent sentences are in short supply right now.
In the meantime, here are some other blogs for you to check out. My friend Lee has written a lovely post about Comics and Ritual. My friend Inez has posted some scary pictures showing the effects of straight-line winds in Iowa (she's also posted some much more cheering pictures of craft projects). Kim of Emergiblog (with whom I've now exchanged e-mail) has posted a beautiful tribute to her grandmother, who inspired her to become a nurse. And hospital chaplain Jeanene has posted a touching poem about one of the more sobering tasks chaplains are asked to perform. I don't know Jeanene personally; her husband is Real Live Preacher, whose work I've admired for a long time now. If you haven't read his book RealLivePreacher.com, which collects a number of gorgeous essays from his blog, I highly recommend it.
Happy reading. See you tomorrow!
