I have had a reminder pinging my phone, which in turn pings my watch all day! It woke me at 6am, 12 hours ahead of schedule. I did not need the reminder at 6 am. And even though I thought I’d cleared it, it keeps pinging away, on the hour, every hour. Sigh. On whose authority is my watch reminding me I have the 11th hour party this week?!
This is my first week, in the new schedule, as a regular host for the PP. Over the years I have swayed from every week, to hardly at all, and back again. And I know I am not the only one. This year, the world has turned us every which way, and what used to be Saturday morning 11th hour stuff now falls here, midweek.
What are you all up to? Are you getting ready for a recording session? Are you in the building live on Sunday? Are you juggling all the balls, all the time? Whether you are using Narrative, or RCL, or doing your own thing, there are some good ideas and starters on our pages from earlier in the week.
If you want some help with liturgies, have a look at this week’s feast!
We are back in the RCL this season, and I am heading to the gospel, probably focussing on the authority, or lack thereof, that the leaders think they have, against the authority Jesus really has. It will be revised twice: for a written sheet, and an online YouTube version – what I used to do in around 15 or so minutes has become compressed, down to a maximum of 10, and I kind of like it, the immediacy, getting to the point, keeping the attention.
This is the space to chat about where you are going with your Sunday, preaching and praying, we all do it. I’m sure you have questions to ask and wisdom to share! I’ll be here and there, over the next couple days – happy to join in the conversation.
