It’s the end of bow hunting season in Maine, which I am aware of because of friends who try each year to fill their freezer with food for the winter. Not so much the hunting, but the archery may be on our minds into next week following tomorrow’s worship service. The idea of “missing the mark” in archery has made its way into the theological term we know as “sin,” and we are encouraged to think about what sets individuals apart from others because of their having missed the mark. We also are invited to remember that there are ways to true up our aim and to help others do the same as we try to live in such a way that all know the possibility of joy and abundance.
Do mark your calendars, as well, for next Sunday when we receive new members into the church.
Blessings and peace, Lisa
