The Pink Flamingo was actually on time for the Wednesday 5:30 service today. (I had Altar Guild). The Feast Day of the Nativity of John the Baptist is on the 25th, exactly 6 months before Christmas. Our most excellent new priest, Judy Burgess, had a great little homily about John the Baptist. (In all fair disclosure, I picture John the Baptist as Newt Gingrich, the voice crying in the wilderness).
The message of today was that John the Baptist repeatedly told everyone he was not The One to Come, that he as a messenger, but not the Messiah. He had no problem being number two, of not being the important one. He was strong enough to know that there was another, the Messiah. The lesson is that there are men and women who are capable of being number two because they know being number two is important.
