This week many Protestant congregations celebrate Reformation Sunday. For my congregation, I think it’s third only after Christmas Eve and Easter. It’s important enough that we have planned a 2-week experiment in gathering outside just in time for Reformation Sunday (and rain is forecast for the first time in months for exactly and only that morning).
Whether you are meeting in person, online, or both; whether you are celebrating Reformation Sunday or the 21st Sunday after Pentecost or some other designation, that sermon must be written.
The Revised Common Lectionary offers Moses’ Legacy and Joshua’s new leadership in Deuteronomy; the Psalm reminds us that God is our help generation after generation; in Thessalonians Paul reminds them of his visit, and in Matthew offers the greatest commandment and David’s legacy (RCL discussion here). Meanwhile the Narrative Lectionary has this same David contemplating his Legacy (he wants to build a house for God) in 2 Samuel (Narrative Discussion Here).
How can we help? Do you have sermon questions? Need Time with the Children ideas? Would you like to tell us about something that has gone well?
I’m 2-days late in posting, and I do apologize for that. If you’ve already recorded a sermon, let us know what you did. If you are still writing, we are here to help.
