Approaching holy ground

Taking in my brief Tuesday coffee reverie between work and Community Group. With an extra service this week for Maundy Thursday, things are plenty busy, so a rest stop or two, however brief, is most welcome.

Just met __sidekick and thewordcop on the way in to Vivace. Love random chance meetings. These women are taking the city by storm, and I'm not the first to say so. Always interesting to introduce myself as banzai; brings back a memory or two.

Sunset streams are shining off the buildings outside. I can tell it's a good one.

Sucker that I am, I've found myself getting geekily excited for Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. It's like returning to an abusive relationship:
Oh, Ike Turner George Lucas! Since you promised not to hit me again make yet another crappy movie, I'll come back! I know you love me!

Community Group tonight will focus on the prayers of Christ's passion, in Gethsemane and on the Cross. We are treading on holy ground; the weight of it is frightening. I want us not to discuss, debate, or question, but instead simply to sit with it. It's where we need to be. Worship grows from spending time in such places.
