Hello, preachers! At my house, three preachers are heading out to meet a fourth for dinner. We have Preacher Party host Liz Crumlish from Scotland visiting at the Manse where my wife and live in South Central Pennsylvania, and I am filling in for her this week. Liz will be preaching for the congregation kathrynzj serves this Sunday, and kathrynzj will be preaching for the closing worship service at NEXT Church’s National Gathering on Wednesday.
(And I? Will be preaching something brilliant to myself in the shower, no doubt, and would be happy to come preach at your church sometime; just ask.)
Wherever you are preaching this week, the party is starting now, and will continue as long as RevGals are working on their sermons. Just getting started? (Because we all have those weeks sometimes.) If you’re in the RCL, take a look at the conversation begun by Katya Ouchakof on Tuesday, and if you’re in the NL, there’s a thoughtful reflection by Mary Austin.
Let us know what direction you are headed in the comments, and share thoughts you have about the texts, a great children’s message, or whatever is making it hard to get started. We are here to see each other through the process.
