We over use superlatives in this country, and most of the time they’re the epitome of hyperbole.
“That’s the best!” Not likely. “This sausage is unbelievable!” No, we’re actually eating it. “Awesome!” And yet, literally no one's in awe.
So, when St. Paul says, “I’m the worst” in this week’s Epistle reading, we assume it’s hyperbole.
Except it’s not. He was.
The amazing thing (see what I did there?) is that he’s also the best.
See you Sunday.
PS. Because of our party last Sunday afternoon, Second Sunday Sandwiches will be happening after worship this week, the third Sunday. It’s a movable feast.
