Someone at work came to get me for a ride with other staff to a nearby location to wait for Matt Lauer to come riding by in his bike. The museum had its inflatable whale "Spouter" on display as the staff waited for Matt to come along. He is riding from Boston to New York City to help raise money and awareness of childhood poverty issues (Red Nose Day). A fun and unexpected turn of events in an otherwise normal Monday workday!
I just watched a really good message from Fr. Cedric called "Forgive and Live." As he pointed out, the Lord's Prayer instructs us to pray "forgive us our sins as we forgive others." Sure, as Christians we all know how much we need forgiveness from God and will even admit sometimes we do others wrong and should ask forgiveness from them. But, what about when people wrong us? Not so easy sometimes to forgive, is it? Perhaps we need to stop and think about the patience God has had for us that has produced the tremendous amount of forgiveness He offers.
