Here we are in the first short section of Ordinary Time or the Season After Epiphany. The hoopla of big feast days is well and truly over. Are you following Jesus through these days of ordinary time? Are you doing a short series before Lent is upon us? Will you ordain and install officers? Are we coming up on Annual Meeting days?
If you’re in the RCL, after Matthew’s Baptism of Jesus last week we have… wait for it… John’s Baptism of Jesus + the calling of the first disciples. You can read a discussion of these Call Texts here. The Narrative Lectionary has a slew of parables from Mark including mustard seeds, sowers, and lamps under bushels. That discussion can be found here.
We are here to listen, to work together, to help one another. Let us know what you are thinking. Ask questions. Offer suggestions and sustenance.
I’m preaching at my place this week, so I will be around working on a sermon and an annual report (struggling to remember last year).
