Unibomber Coach, Mary and Water

I only watched parts of Monday Night Football last night. That was a weird ending! It almost seemed like a spell was cast on Carolina that caused them to go braindead. But that makes sense, doesn't it? A spell cast by the evil empire -- the New England Patriots and their Unibomber coach.

This Sunday I am preaching on Mary, the mother of Jesus. I am struck that it seems the major theme of both Mary and Joseph is their willingness and obedience. We so sanitize these stories. But as I try to live the characters, it is amazing the things they had to deal with by accepting God's call.

Trivia: Did you know that we Americans each use over 120 gallons of water a day, on average? In England, they average about 30 gallons per person.

Baltimore gave that game to N.E. by calling a time-out late in the 4th quarter.

I wonder how much more cologne they use in England.

I couldn't believe the ending. Every time Baltimore made a great play, something nullified it. It was insane. I stayed up late just to see Baltimore win only to see NE pull it out at the end. Now I'm pulling for Miami to win their first game against NE.

Carolina. Baltimore. At least I got the right coast.

Mary and Joseph's story shows that great faith leads inevitably to great obedience and service - a lesson this age should grasp.
