Someone has said that God’s last name ought to be surprise. Maybe so. Just when we think we have life figured out, something else comes along that opens us to even deeper levels of contemplation. For most of us, life is rather routine. We pretty well know what each day holds for us. There will be certain meals, appointments, work schedules, school calendars, family gatherings, evening activities, sleep. We even know what Sunday worship is going to be and feel like. But it’s just here, on a predictable day like today, that our God may just step out of the ordinary and say “surprise!” You never know.
