This week I’m thinking about old THoughts in new times…

Listen here or scroll down to keep reading.

So, by my count, there are over 400 THursdayTHoughts out there in the world. In fact, there are 407 that have been delivered to you by Mailchimp over the span of 9 years. This doesn’t count the ones that I wrote before going to Mailchimp.

I am pretty sure that the first THursdayTHought was delivered to your email in box over 10 years ago.

That is a lot of THoughts!

Now, I don’t bring this up for you to be wowed by my prolific writing (although a few atta-girls would be nice…).

No, I bring it up because I wonder which are your favorites!

Here is what I would like to do for the summer: I want to reprint (I hope!) your favorite THursdayTHoughts. I say I hope because I have to be able to find them and that could be a herculean task! And, if your favorite somehow goes back beyond the 9 years I have archived in Mailchimp, we may be out of luck.

And Jesus said to his disciples, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”

Matthew 13:52

So, if you have a favorite, just send me your recollection of what it was about. You know, like the titles of  “Friends” episodes: “The one about…” and then fill in the blank: fire or sharpies or prayer or dandelions. How to do this? Easy! Just send an email to me (pastor@celebration-lutheran.org) with your favorite. Can’t decide? Send them all! Don’t have a favorite? That’s ok… I don’t think I do either.

I’m excited about this project. I think it will be interesting to see how these THoughts have progressed over the years — maybe even how my theology may have changed over the years. Because, you see, nothing ever stays the same. The format has changed, I have changed, and even you have changed. God is always doing something new — so even when we go back to the old we are given to see it in new ways.
