Didja see what I did there? Fancy ll’ alliteration trying to capture the essence of the discussions of the Revised Common Lectionary and Narrative Lectionary posts from earlier this week on our RevGalBlogPals site. You can read those discussions here RCL: Weird, Fantastic, and Unbelievable and here Narrative Lectionary: It’s all about love (1Corinthians13:1-13)
So now that I have the links posted to the brilliant minds of our sister preaching pals who faithfully explore the texts of the week, it’s time to get down to business. Today is my first time evah hosting the Preacher Party, which is one of my favorite features on the blog. So, WELCOME to this PARTY! By the time this post goes live, I will have laid out the Preacher Party Brunch: Mimosas, fair trade coffee, green smoothies, savory and sweet crepes made to order, farm fresh eggs from my imaginary chickens and vegan bacon, shrimp and cheese grits, toast and jam made from the flour I milled by hand and fruit harvested from my strawberry patch *also imaginary but still delish* and fruit cups for all. You can also order from the regular menu. Because, you know, this is my first time hosting this gig, so I am going all out. For you, dear preachers. You need the sustenance and pampering! And there is more, because this all day party will also include complimentary spa packages, candlelight dinners, cleansing yoga, and a SERMON in your back pocket!
So seriously, you can tell I have no idea where I am going right now with MY sermon, but it will include Lydia, the title “Outside the Gates”, a communion liturgy, a pastoral prayer, and a children’s time. Please let us know how we can support YOU…and let us be sweet to one another as we seek to share Good News to our varied and many flocks.
P.S. A random but important thought. I have been seeing a lot of comments about the Oxford Comma in the inter webs. Forgive me, I have no idea what comma rules I am breaking, so if you are a purist regarding the Oxford comma, I am begging forgiveness and ignorance.
