Ministry is Mundane

Much of life is mundane. I don't mean that it's boring, I mean that it's ordinary and much the same everyday. We get up, if we're religious we may pray or read, get ready, tend to our vocations, come home, eat dinner, work again or have some r&r, brush our teeth and go to bed. Occasionally we'll have a fun trip, date night, or surprise (sometimes good, sometimes bad), but most of our life is characterized by routine. It's the daily grind. 

Unsurprisingly, much of ministry is mundane too. Pastors prepare sermons week-in and week-out, pray for the congregation, make visits that few notice, minister in Word and Sacrament, and then do it all over again the next week.

This online space is a place for my musings, sermons, writings, etc.

So to no surprise, my life is full of much the same as most everybody. I'm a mundane minister here to serve up the gospel for anyone and everyone willing to listen and talk; because the gospel is for everybody.
