The weekend is upon us, friends. For some of us, these days that means we’re already finished with sermons that have to be recorded or printed-and-posted, and we’re trying to figure out what it means to relax on a Saturday. For others, it means we’re still struggling to find the right words and the right lighting and the right outfit and the right location for a livestream or a conference call.

Whatever state you’re in today, we’re here for you! If you’re finished, feel free to share your brilliance to inspire others. If you’re still working, this is the place for companionship and commiseration. If you haven’t started (hands up….ok, it’s me), this is the place for ideas and hope.

Whether you’re on Good Shepherd Sunday with the RCL, visiting Thessalonica in the Narrative Lectionary, a series of resurrection appearances, a journey through Acts, or some other series, you are welcome here! I’ve got homemade bagels and a tub of cream cheese, the kettle is on, the gin cupboard is full, and a friend dropped off some Scottish Tablet Ice Cream yesterday, so pull up a chair and share some abundant life!

Teri Peterson is a minister in the Church of Scotland. She just received a brand new laptop so is far more interested in figuring that out than in doing work, so is trying to focus! She is co-author of Who’s Got Time: spirituality for a busy generation, a board member of RevGalBlogPals, and a contributor to There’s A Woman in the Pulpit.

  1. It’s written, two copies ready to send to non-internet members–but not until too late to get in the mail today. Still have to record. I focused on Jesus as the gate that opens: through him we can stay connected in these times.


  2. Looks like everyone got done early! Thanks, Teri, for the photo of the lambs. It’s what I remember from my trip to Scotland in May two years ago. Lambs everywhere. Looking forward to seeing you two years from now on Iona.


  3. Just finished tonight! The series I’m working through is using Job 28 as this Sunday’s text and I’m OBSESSED with it. I’ve written a sermon but it’s nothing as a nearly as good as the poetry of Job 28.


  4. Nope, I’m still mulling it over and over. My angle is that the 23rd Psalm isn’t just for funerals, but I have to pare it down so I don’t unload too much on my little congregation. I don’t record until tomorrow evening, 6 pm. EST, since my guys like to see me live. And, I love the little lambs! Blessings, Lee
