Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to solve.

Well I did it.  I walked into church on Sunday morning without a sermon.  Right up until the last moment, I thought I would be staying home recovering from illness.  But it was not to be.  So this is less of a sermon and more of some teaching time.  So have a listen....not the usual Transfiguration.  And I think I forgot to preach the Gospel.  Oh well.  I'll confess it during Lent.  And by the way, here's my source on the teaching of the Psalms.  Good stuff -- Psalms by James Limburg (public library and citation).
