Mission based on Paul's letter to the church at Ephesus (Ephesians), Chapter 4, verse 25 through Chapter 5, verse 2.
Hello. My name is Denise, and I'm a procrastinator.
I have dishes in my sink.
At least once a week I have to pull the towel for my shower directly out of the clean clothes hamper.
I still haven't finished all the thank you notes from my wedding. My fourteenth anniversary is coming up next week.
And I have other, more complicated unfinished business in my life as well.
Apologies I should have made but couldn't figure out what to say.
Thank yous I should have made but the moment passed and I couldn't figure out how to bring it up again.
I can't be the only person with this kind of unfinished emotional business.
We're human. We get angry. It's okay. Just make it better before too much time passes.
That's the basic message behind what Paul writes to the Ephesians in the passage of scripture I linked at the beginning of this post that you would probably rather die than click the link.
It's still good advice. How much time is too much? Paul says don't let the sun go down on your anger, but I think he's being metaphorical.
It may feel as though too much time has passed to make up for something you said or did because you were angry, but you'll never know if you don't try.
Don't raise your expectations to high. Don't think to long and hard about what will happen.
Just say the thing you know you should say but are too afraid to say.
Blog about it, tweet about it, meme about it, video or photograph it and post to social media with the hashtags #saysomething and #thechurchofyesand.
