Catherine's church family has a summer retreat every year, camp for grown-ups. They always ask for ideas for their morning sessions, so I suggested that I do a tour of the Minor Prophets — all twelve, in 45 minutes. They took me up on it (partially, in the words of one committee member, just to see if it could be accomplished), and off I went, doing something I've been gifted to do, and haven't done in way too long: speaking the truth to a loving family of listeners, getting them to laugh and think and question. I was predictably rusty, but loved every minute of preparing and delivering it, 45 minutes of a tall cold drink of water to a man on a desert journey.
