5D4E813D-156E-410A-A134-C780C81CB258 What kind of week are you having? In your part of the world, are thoughts turning to holidays, is church life slowing down? Or are things just as busy as ever?

Here in Scotland, most schools have finished up for summer and church programmes have taken a break. Sunday service attendances will be lower. But we still have to feed the sheep who show up!

so what are your preaching plans this weekend – are you using the RCL, (blogpost from earlier this week is here) a series for the season, or taking the opportunity to do something completely different?

Let us know in the comments what plans you have and how close you are to realising those. Feel free to ask for or offer help as we continue to serve God in worship this week.

5 thoughts on “11th Hour Preacher Party: Looking ahead

  1. It’s our inaugural Pride Sunday at our church. Preaching Elijah handing off the mantle to Elijah. Going to use the rainbow flag as a modern version of Elijah’s mantle as we recognize the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots here in the US.


  2. I am struggling to focus on sermon prep. My credentialing denomination just ousted two pastors and one of its founding congregations, I have a wedding this afternoon (the grooms parents speak no English) and tomorrow afternoon we lay to rest a dearly loved colleague who died of cancer at age 38. I will participate in that service. Somehow, preaching on keeping one’s hand to the plow feels very hollow right now.


We hope you'll join the conversation!
