Hi there preachers, would-be-preachers, gonna-preach-eventually-preachers, I-know-I-have-words-somewhere-preachers… this is your one stop shop for collective groaning, sharing of goodies (virtual), ideas, words of encouragement and general Oh-my-Goodness-where-did-the-week-go calls for help.
It’s the middle of Lent; here in Scotland this means two things this week – it’s Mothering Sunday and time for us to catch up with the rest of the world moving to British Summertime (BST) better known as Daylight Savings – which I have already ‘done’ once this year thank you very much! Oh yes, for me personally it is also Annual Meeting Sunday, and I have a stinker of a cold which means almost no voice, a hacking cough and streaming nose (so attractive!)
Earlier this week we shared thoughts for those of you using either RCL or NL, with excellent thoughts on suicide awareness and sensitivity from Rachel Keefe, and a shout out to all the Bridesmaids to get sharing with the oil from Marci Glass.
Rachel’s post is actually called the Prodigal Edition, and also covers a truly fabulous thought on Prodigal God (go on! go read it!)
And Marci’s post, is about the ahem, wise and foolish… nah – bridesmaids who are marginalised called Oil Crisis, and very definitely, you should read this one too – whether or not you use the NL!
Whether your sermon is ready to go; or you have yet to even begin thinking about it, there is a welcome for you. I will be around and about, bar a couple of hours to spend with my son and D-i-L for “Early Mothers Day” lunch.
Share your goodies, your questions, your ideas and give & receive encouragement
