Beach Vaul

Even though we’re a few months in, I still can’t get used to the Preacher Party being this early in the week. (That’s why I’m late in posting this!) I am truly a 11th Hour Preacher! But I know that, for some of you, Sunday’s service is already winging its way through cyber space, scattering its seed where it will, rippling out from the often contained nucleus of folk with whom we normally share worship.
So, what word are you sharing this week?
The RCL Texts invite us to consider leadership in a changed landscape – is that your focus? See the RCL blog post from earlier in the week for inspiration.
We’d love you to share your thoughts on preaching this week, share your inspiration or ask for what you need in the comments as we help each other share the word of God today.
Let me share with you a prayer for that work:

When we can only see what is before us
Lord, lift our eyes to see beyond
When we can only see what is around us
Lord, lift our eyes to see beyond
When we can only see all that we have lost
Lord, lift our eyes to see beyond
When we can only see change and upheaval
Lord, lift our eyes to see beyond
Show us, O Lord, how far we have come
Remind us of how you have stayed with us all the way
Reassure us that still you walk beside us
Restore our faith in all the new things you reveal
and the new paths in which you lead us
And though we may not recognise
the places we now inhabit
May we trust in your goodness
which is for every generation
Lord, lift our eyes to see beyond.
