In addition to tweaking my sermon, sitting on the sun-drenched deck, and finishing a novel I’ve been reading in snatches all week, I spent part of my Saturday baking healthy muffins. The muffins are for the “light breakfast” served at the Just Eating class on Sunday morning. As I said, they’re healthy, but like some things healthy(not all things, of course), they were a little disappointing. Which brings me to the question, is it really possible to bake without butter? The muffin ingredients sound wonderful and make one feel positively righteous about healthy eating – chopped apples, shredded carrots, brown sugar, whole grain flour, flax seed, stone cut oatmeal. Yet they are not quite what one wants when one chooses a muffin. Perhaps its not just my sermon that needs tweaking. The muffins could use a little help also.
If you haven’t been attending the Just Eating class at Zion, you might want to consider joining in. We start at 8:45 Sunday mornings (muffins and coffee at 8:30). It is a stimulating, interesting class—a good Lenten reflection and opportunity to get to know some new people. And, you can give me your opinion of the muffins.
See you in Sunday School!
