Day 143/365 It's time to go, T-shirt


When I was at Andover Newton Theological School the student association gave us T-shirts. They only handed out big sizes, which was fine with me--great to lounge around in. But I must admit that I didn’t wear mine much; I hadn’t yet developed the art of lounging, and unfortunately for clergy types, no course was offered on the topic. 

   Now that it’s time to let go of the T-shirt, I have the perfect recipient: two and a half week old Micah, son of my pastor, Tom and his wife, Rachel. It will take Micah a while to grow into such a large size, but it does have his name on it. On the other hand he may have to steal it from his father, whose favorite scripture is Micah 6:8, which just happens to be written on the T-shirt:

What does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?  Micah 6:8
