As summer turns to fall in the northern hemisphere, our best offering in my desert home may be the cooler evenings and sunsets. In the Southern Hemisphere, Spring is coming! What will you preach this last day of summer or winter?
RCL preachers have scheming managers, famous quotes about “no balm in Gilead” (will anyone sing the hymn this week?) and wildly different Psalm moods. The Revised Common Lectionary Discussion is here.
Narrative Lectionary preachers get to wrestle with Jacob as they wrestle with their sermons. Find that discussion here.
The calendar tells me that Saturday is the International Day of Peace if anyone is leaning into that in some way. At my place we are doing a series and wondering about Legion and mental illness, though I will be taking the children for a study on the Lord’s Prayer.
What are you preaching? What are you wondering? Do you need a children’s time or an illustration suggestion? Do you have end-of-summer treats to share with the group? Comment below and we’ll see what we can do together. I will offer coffee and bagels and cream cheese for the morning, though I am west of many of you so it may be brunch, lunch, or dinner for you.
Wendy Lamb works as a commissioned pastor in a Presbyterian Church (USA) in Southern California and teaches college English classes at a local community college. Once upon a time she blogged at Bookgirl and hopes to return to it soon. She is a first time host at the Preacher Party, but reads it faithfully each week, commenting when preaching and praying for others when not.
