Tomorrow is the vernal equinox, the day many of us in the snow belt wait for, hope for, long for.
It’s been a long winter, folks. For many of us it has been a very long Lent. This is about the time in the liturgical season when I start getting antsy, ready for a new thing– the kind of new thing that is talked about in this week’s lectionary passages.
This week is also a convergence of a sort for me. I have been preaching a relatively short time (about three years every week, and off and on for three years before that), but this lectionary group has four texts that I have preached before! Too bad I’m still off lectionary, continuing the sermon series instead.
What are you working on this last day of winter? What word will you bring this first Lord’s Day of Spring?
