|Come and See|
As our week’s preparation begins (or continues), let us pray [prayer source]:
I have to admit that I found myself in a quandry this week. Not one but TWO of my favourite scripture passages in the same week! Which one to preach on???? Oh but first maybe we should point out that the RCL readings for this week (2nd After Epiphany, Year B) can be found here.
|Psalm 139 from this great site|
SO we have God’s voice coming to a young child in the dead of the night–and a teacher who is a little slow to figure out what is happening.
OR we have the Psalmist proclaiming the God who knows him intimately. I have to wonder if this is blessing or curse though. If we are honest, aren’t there parts of our lives and selves we would sometimes wish NOBODY knew about?
OR, maybe you want to take on Paul and the Corinthian church. Is it about sexual ethics only or is there an extension to be made here?
OR, do you want to go with the Gospel. Is it a call/response story or an evangelism moment?
Where do you see worship taking you this week? Any ideas for a children’s time on any of the passages (I have to admit that a Children’s Time using the actual words of the Corinthians passage would be interesting to watch)? What are the questions that are driving your sermon forward this week? What hymns do you hear in your head? Any articles/blogs you have read that you want to share? Let us know in the comments.
