My sermon for Sunday is in solid draft form because I will be spending a good portion of Saturday in a budget meeting. I’m continuing to ponder the idea from last week, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” along with the questions “Where is God?” “Are we following God?” and, “Can anything good come out of me, you, us, this church?” I’m starting with a story about getting lost by wandering off the path and considering how those times that we wander off or are afraid might be the very times when we are most open to God and God’s call to us. Or not. One could be like Jonah, and end up in the belly of beast. Or, one could be like the Ninievites, with transformational, life saving changes being made, changes that mean following God.
Maybe you are reflecting on one of the readings from the RCL? Or maybe you are working the NL and reflecting on John, on how Jesus is the body of God, that God dwells in and through Jesus. And, how God might dwell in and through us, too?
This is the preacher party and I’ll be around most of the day. We’re here to share some coffee, share ideas, share hope, prayer, and consolation, if that is needed.
