Even if we don't want to

The first reading for Sunday (Joshua) is all about a choice. 

Some choices matter, and others don’t.  Some choices are hard, and others are easy.  And there are some choices we’d just like to avoid.  Completely. 

Joshua is making a big deal about a choice.  He’s doing it because he knows something we don’t like to admit.  But it’s still true, whether we admit it or not. 

There are some choices we just can’t avoid.  And by trying to avoid them, we still make a choice.  Even if we don’t want to. 

This is one of those choices. 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Sunday
