It’s that time again….time to write a sermon!
Or, for some of us, time to get ready for holiday club, or to figure out how to incorporate the past week of children’s programming/vacation bible school into a Sunday service, not knowing how many might appear.
Or perhaps it’s time to confront the powers of the world, with a parable like Nathan’s? Or to sing “one lord, one faith…” with gusto! Or to bake some bread, for added effect in the midst of weeks of John 6. Or maybe you’re pondering Ruth’s situation with Boaz.
Or are you in the midst of a summer series? Ours is about people’s favourite hymns, and this week it’s all creation hymns, so I am preaching on both creation stories…though I haven’t quite worked out how yet.
This is the place for you, whether you’ve figured it out and just need to sit down and put words together, or whether you haven’t got a clue yet. This is where we look for beauty together, in the midst of the ordinary, and then share that with the world in need of good news. Share your plans, ideas, half-formed thoughts, inspirational quotes, and virtual snacks!
I’ve got enough chocolate to keep us all going all weekend, so pull up a chair and join the party!
Teri Peterson is a minister in the Church of Scotland, in a congregation where the Holiday Club starts on Monday and includes mornings for kids, afternoons for adults, and evenings for teens….for five consecutive days. She spends her free time (of which this week will have none) reading, petting the kitties, and amassing an ever larger collection of rain gear. And, of course, taking pictures of the view from her manse window!
