Melissa’s sermon this Sunday focused on the parable from Matthew 25:1-13 about the bridesmaids waiting for the long-delayed bridal party, with all of them falling asleep and half of them running out of lamp oil.
Jackie and Trixie provided a reenactment of how things maybe could have gone better had they stayed awake.
What might happen if we don’t fall asleep on one another? The darkness is so dark, the night is so long. Pay attention to each other. Look towards each other’s needs. Share hope with each other. Because some of us can be silly and some of us wise. It’s likely that in the same day we could be both.
