Okay. I admit it. Although I am preaching on Sunday, this week has been so busy, I mean SO BUSY, that I have no idea what the readings are. It’s not my intention to be so squirrelly….some weeks are just like that.
It’s also true, however, that I am in week five of a six week preaching series so I don’t even need to know what the readings are for Sunday, because I won’t be preaching on them.
And, more to the point, between now and Sunday, I have a HUGE event, the 150th Anniversary dinner celebration for the church I serve is Saturday night. That is taking all of my attention, for now. So. Good thing I have that preaching series. Which, by the way, I have preached before so I don’t have to do much more than tweak it before I preach it on Sunday.
That said, I am sure each of you have already studied and prayed and meditated on the readings for Sunday. Perhaps you even have some inkling of an idea of what you want to say. MAYBE…maybe…you have already written your sermon…?
Well. Regardless. Here we are. The 11th hour preachers party. And, whether you are preaching from the Narrative Lectionary or the Revised Lectionary (and, by the way you can find a good discussion and some decent perspective on both lectionaries if you scroll back to Tuesday’s posting…) whether you have a good idea or no idea, this preacher’s party is for all of us. We’re here to help one another, pray and support one another, commiserate with one another, celebrate one another.
So, pull up a chair, grab a mug. I have lots of fresh coffee to share, or tea if you prefer.
