Today Sunday the 5th of February is Super Bowl Sunday and our church joins in the fun of the day with a different kind of Sunday. We arrive for tailgating with grilled sausages and other treats as we walk into church. There are photo ops inside. Do I look like a natural with that football?
Things are flashier than usual and noisier, too. Two of our pastors represent each team that is playing in the Super Bowl. They go back and forth with sermon points. If they communicate it well they get a touchdown. Pastor Wolfgang covered Free Agent vs. Team Player, and Karma vs. Grace. Pastor Alexander covered Worry vs. Trust, and Death vs. Life. There are penalties and challenges. The game was tied at the end of 4 quarters so the two pastors had a memory verse challenge in overtime for extra points. The truth and the gospel is communicated. Pastor Alexander won on a challenge that is still being disputed after the game. Does that sound familiar?
We came home from church ready to tackle these creations in our kitchen in honor of the two Super Bowl Football teams. I do love a theme for cooking and setting tables. No table set this year since it’s just Dear and me today. Truth be told we aren’t big football fans but we join in the fun for Super Bowl Sunday. We always hope to see a good new commercial. It was a treat to see our 41st President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara on the field while President Bush tossed the coin. The President hasn’t been home from the hospital long after a struggle with pneumonia. He is the oldest living president in the U.S.A. currently. God bless him.
I’m publishing this before we know who wins but if it goes like church did this morning the Atlanta Falcons will win but New England are the come back kings so…
I’m linking up with Maggie from Normandy Life for Mosaic Monday.
Our friends to the north are experiencing more snow than usual and so much so that many church services were cancelled because of treacherous roads. They are predicting snow for us, too, later today and tomorrow. Hope whatever the weather you are comfy cozy in your corner of the world.
