Over here in Scotland, it is Thursday morning – it isn’t Thanksgiving where I am – but I do know lots of my sisters and colleagues will be celebrating today – not how they would have originally planned. but still, finding ways to give thanks in this weird and crazy year.
For me, today’s recording day. of course, in order to record I have to have a sermon written… pray gin that that will take shape soon. Normally I stick to RCL – but my church is going into a union with another net year, and as a step on the way, we decide to follow the format of the neighbours, so I have a totally different theme, off lectionary. It means I must start from scratch! I’m sure something will come… soon!
Wherever you are in the world, and however you are tackling advent Sunday on US Thanksgiving Weekend – I pray you are inspired! There are some great resources here on the blog: if you follow RCL – look here; if you are in the Narrative – try this; and if you are looking for some help with liturgies and prayers, you’ll find some great ideas here…
Meantime: I took our Nativity figures out of their tissue, and set the Wisemen off on their travels. This year, because we are not in the building every week, they are heading out and about, visiting some of our home bound members…
Wherever your journeying takes you this week, come and join in the fun. Comment below with your ideas, your questions, share links for those of us still struggling to get going. And, if you have food to spare on your table – put some of those virtual snacks and treats up to share.
