That Sheetz Egg Salad Sandwich has been everywhere man! We bought it like a couple weeks ago and it has been in and out of our refrigerator every day. It still looks good, nothing wrong with it, but it has been in and out of our fridge for a very long time.
Eunkyung bought this thing a while back like a couple of weeks ago after finishing her day shift and it wasn’t eaten that night, so we threw it in the fridge. Before she began work, day or night shift, she’d take it with her in hopes that she could eat it during her breaks, but never had the chance. Hence, uneaten egg salad sandwich comes back home, enters the fridge, day in, day out. I have taken turns with this sandwich, by taking it with me when I had visitations or going out fishing, but still either I forgot about it, or just didn’t get the chance to eat, and hence back in the fridge.
This sandwich has been everywhere, traveling with us for work or play. But seems to always find its way back to the refrigerator. This sandwich not only has seen everything in Central PA, but also within the refrigerator it has seen different items leave, and never come back. And has seen new items enter. The sandwich has been a foundation for the refrigerator. It always comes back, and it will always exist in the refrigerator. It’s like you will always have ketchup, pickles, milk, and eggs in the refrigerator. Well now, we will always have Sheetz egg salad sandwich.
Now, let's get theological. I want us to be the Sheetz egg salad sandwich. Go place, travel, see people, experience life; the life that God has made for us! But remember, the refrigerator is like the church or maybe it’s like God. We always have to come back to God. If the refrigerator is like the church, just remember, items/people, will come and go, but you are the egg salad sandwich, a pillar or the church/refrigerator, sitting next to other pillars like ketchup and pickles.
You may leave the refrigerator, just as we leave church, after all, at the end of worship at the Benediction, we are sent out of the church to enter the world, to bring the message of hope, forgiveness, love, and peace. But once again, like the egg salad sandwich, we are called to come back to God, taking in all that we have experienced in our week, find rest, be restored, just so we can be sent out again.
I don’t know where this Sheetz egg salad sandwich is going to go tomorrow, or what it will do, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see if it leaves and comes back as it always does. God bless all who are the egg salad sandwiches of the Christian faith!
Hey this is Rev. Brian Choi's random thought throughout my week. Most of this stuff, will probably be about family, church, fishing, music, movies, food, whatever I think of, hopefully it will have some sort of theological reflection (maybe).
