Whenever your 11th hour arrives, the preacher party is here! Revised Common Lectionary post is available for your perusal and conversation.  Or maybe you’re doing a series? Or something else creative?

I wish my sermons could be as intricate, yet orderly and symmetrical, as this spider lily that blooms in our backyard.

  1. I am in seeds and paths and thorns and rocks. Looking to find a new way to see this parable so thinking along the lines of roots…the roots that the sowers (i.e. point a finger at oneself) possess.


    1. ooh, interesting. I led a retreat using this passage before, and had each keynote reflect on seeing ourselves in a different role in the parable (sower, seed, ground(s)). But I never considered roots! Now I’m pondering that.


  2. Continuing in Romans and preaching Romans 8, “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus!” Helped immensely by David Lose’s Dear Working Preacher from a number of years ago


We hope you'll join the conversation!
