Last Sunday, Live at Five gathered early in the morning to worship with the Congregation of St. Martin's-a congregation of homeless and housed that meets in the back room of a homeless shelter. Many of us came away from our morning at St. Martin's just a bit unsettled. Many of us felt we were sitting on needles and pins.
I'm beginning to think that pins and needles and needles and pins aregood things. If I'm feeling just a bit uncomfortable, just a bit unsettled, that may mean I'm not living the way God calls me to live. Those pins and needles might just be needling me on to a life more in line with the life to which God calls us all. The life of building and living into the reign of God.
Always on needles and pins,
