It’s that time again—time to write a sermon. Sometimes it feels like we just did that…
This week the various lectionaries give us a lot to unpack, whether it’s the RCL and Jesus apparently telling us to forsake family ties, or the NL with the 2nd creation story and the difficulty that western culture has heaped on the word “helper”…Or maybe you’re in Creation Time, thinking about how we care for (or don’t) this world God has entrusted to us. Or maybe you’re starting a new series to go with a new season or school year (in the northern hemisphere) or to align with springtime coming at last (in the southern hemisphere). Or maybe, like here, it’s one of the Sundays for an infrequent formal communion, and so there’s not much time for preaching at all and you wonder how to fit it all in.
Whatever you’re unpacking this weekend, you are welcome here! Pull up a chair, grab a snack (virtual snacks are all good for you!), and join in the fun as we bounce ideas around, commiserate a little, and wait for the Spirit’s sermon fairy to appear.
