"You're in charge of the weather Pastor Ted." That's what my church members jokingly tell me when we talk about the annual church sale. The 52nd annual consignment auction is today.
I better pray real hard. When I woke up this morning, it was raining outside. A look at the radar map suggests the rain will move away by the time we start at 9:30am, but then more clouds are heading our way.
The church sale is always a fun time for our church and community. Most of the stuff that's bought and sold is junk, but there are always a few treasures to find--and the food and fellowship can't be beat. The kids love the day because we bring out two rides created by the late Howard Hodgson--the Leapin' Lizard (a large wagon with uneven wheels, which bounces the kids up and down) and the Lolly Pop Trolly (a train of barrells pulled by a 4-wheeler).
Lord, it's your church and your sale. You're in charge of the weather.
