What's stewing today:
The text this week
Naaman, Jesus and Leprosy.
India still has an active leper colony (if not official).
New York's Leper Colony is falling into disrepair.
Who is a leper in this day and age? Anyone we feel is unclean. AIDS patients, homeless (it might rub off!), the unemployed, people who are different than we are.
Sermonic action: get people to admit they are afraid of "germs" and hold up their bottles of Purell in the sermon.
Leprosy leads to a loneliness that goes all the way to the bone.
Looking for more stuff now...
