A lost son. A bitter brother. A forgiving father. “There was a man who had two sons…” which could evoke images of Adam, or Abraham, or Isaac. Where are you going with this Revised Common Lectionary Gospel passage? It is so familiar, it can be difficult to preach. On the other hand, it is so rich that there are dozens of sermons just waiting to be preached! Please share your thoughts in the comments.
Perhaps you’re preaching on the celebration of the Passover in Joshua, or forgiveness in the Psalm, or the new creation of 2 Corinthians. Discussion of the RCL passages began earlier this week on this page. Where is your sermon taking you?
Narrative Lectionary preachers get the greatest commandment today, along with some confusion about the relationship between David and the Messiah, a warning against the scribes, and the generous gift of the widow. There must be at least four sermons in there, each tugging for your attention. Some ideas were shared here earlier this week. Which sermon will you preach?
As we pass the halfway point of Lent, you may be finding yourself in the middle of a sermon series, or focused on your personal Lenten discipline, or wrapped up in preparations for Holy Week. Our UK sisters are celebrating Mothering Sunday, while our US colleagues ponder the direction of this election cycle. What are you working on today? Which Scriptures and themes speak to you? Please share your ideas, your virtual snacks, and the support of this community! Blessings on your writing and your preaching this week.
