Where are you right now? I’m at a coffee shop after a last minute reschedule of coffee with a congregant, and savoring the extra moments of babysitting to spend on my sermon before my three boy-boys get to bed. Where are you? What are you up to? No matter what I’m grateful that you have spent a little time here to refresh and refocus as you do the sermonizing thing!
If you are journeying through the RCL take a look at Rev. Rachel Hackenburg’s post about the parable of the talents and the difficulty of slavery being named in the text. If you have been knee deep in prophets with the Narrative Lectionary consider looking at Rev. Lia Scholl’s post about prophecy, naming God and dealing with justice.
If you need a break, or some humor, I recommend reading Rev. Joanna Harader’s Wits’-end-day post on gratitude.
I’m here drinking my tea, praying the Word of God is whispering to your soul tonight!
Katy Stenta is a solo pastor at a tiny church that is bigger on the inside in Albany, NY for over seven years. When she is not dreaming up projects and ideas, some of which creep into the church, she plays with her three boys-boys or goes and visits her husband at the library, while he works, to read.
