Preaching friends, I’m not in much of a partying frame of mind. I know many of you in the U.S. are watching the weather forecast with concern, and I know that many of the rest of us are stunned by the devastation Hurricane Matthew has wrought in Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas, and now in the United States. I also know that the U.S. election is weighing on me, and many of you. I know, too, that there are countless other burdens that we each carry, for ourselves, for others, and for the world. We pray.
Sunday morning is still approaching rather quickly, and we need a sermon, however. So let’s sit down together and hammer this out. Revised Common Lectionary preachers: find a discussion about your possibilities here. And a Narrative Lectionary discussion is here. Other folks, feel free to chime in with your series or whatever God has called you to preach about this week. I’d also love to hear a children’s time idea or two.
Peace be with all of you, friends.
