It’s that time again, friends—time to write a sermon! Which also means time to procrastinate in both more and less productive ways.
Some of us, I know, procrastinate by doing things like cleaning the house. The sermon may not be done, but the laundry is!
Others of us (read: me) procrastinate by following the auto-play of YouTube videos, going down rabbit holes that start innocently enough with “I need to know the motions to go with this song we’re using for the summer Holiday Club even though it’s two months away” and ending up with watching a variety of covers of “Fight Song” and a bunch of renditions of “This is Me”…and then obviously flash mobs, somehow.
I’m starting a summer series on people’s favourite hymns, so I’m looking at how we sing praise. You might be following one of the lectionaries, or doing another series. Whatever the case, we’re here to do it together! Whether you’re procrastinating or writing up a storm, here you’ll find snacks to share, friends to commiserate with, children’s sermon ideas, and fun!
Teri Peterson is a minister in the Church of Scotland, enjoying the wonder that is summer weather on the west coast, for however long it lasts! She blogs sporadically at CleverTitleHere, is co-author of the book Who’s Got Time: Spirituality for a Busy Generation, and is a contributor to There’s A Woman In The Pulpit. And may have a slight addiction to flash mob videos.
