Come early or late, God is there.
However circuitous our route, God is there. Going before us, holding out grace, welcoming us in no matter how we’ve tarried or travelled.
God in all our meanderings, embracing us with love.
Thanks be to God.
Our readings this week in both the Narrative and RCL seem to point us to a God who delights when we show up or when we wake up to the presence of God in everyday life.
Mary Austin shares her thoughts on the NL and Katya Ouchakof shares thoughts on the RCL. in blog posts from earlier in the week – and there is good discussion in the comments on both. Please add to those or comment here on where your preaching is taking you this week. What has inspired you and where are you finding contemporary illustrations for the texts?
And, if you’re looking for something in particular, do ask, as, together, we bring God’s word to God’s people today.
