I'll do this again, but I want to mention that Sunday afternoon the fire department is going to have an open house. It's a great opportunity to stop by and take a tour or check out some fun things they'll have set up. Importantly for us, we need to keep their parking lot clear for them. If you can, please park across the street at the dentist's office. If that won't work, you can also park in the line of spaces against the church, but please don't park in the rest of the lot.
Our reading for today features Jesus sending out 72 disciples to spread the word. One thing that catches my attention here is that announcing the coming of the kingdom is good news or bad news depending on how we respond to it. How are we sharing the word now?
