Is it just me – or does this preaching gig just get harder and harder? Every single week, our world seems to throw up yet another challenge into which we are called to allow God’s word to ring a note of hope, comfort and life.
Into what are you being invited to speak this week?
For me, a Scottish RevGal, this week it is the confounding news that political scaremongering and xenophobia (I’m doing my best to play nicely here) has resulted in a UK vote to leave the EU.
It is tempting to lose hope in the face of world events and to despair when confronted with local and global inhumanity. Love is a casualty everywhere. And yet… And yet, God who is love and might and power, the God of all hope, the God of all our yesterdays and all our tomorrows, invites us – that’s you and I – to speak into this day, the word of life. So let’s do this awesome thing to which we are called with confidence and with courage.
Here is the place to share, in love with one another, the issues taxing us as we prepare to speak God’s word in season. You are welcome. Ask for what you need, share what you have and, together, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we will preach God’s word for God’s world today.
