What will you be preaching this week? How can we help?
There are lots of options this week. The Narrative Lectionary has King David with commentary and sermon ideas posted here.
The Revised Common Lectionary offers Jacob and the Angel or more Jeremiah, a very small bit of Psalm 119 about the Law or Psalm 121, Timothy and sacred writings, and the parable of the widow and the judge. There is discussion on the RCL texts here.
At my place we are in Stewardship season in the midst of a longer series. I am coincidentally preaching last week’s Jeremiah passage and am thinking about the community in exile in terms of my own community.
So… Open those documents (already begun or totally blank), sort through the texts, and let’s see what we can do. I’ll try to make cinnamon bread to have ready for my Saturday morning (long after most of yours), but it makes a good mid-day snack. Ask your questions, offer your comments, and let’s write!
