We find ourselves once again in Lent. Though it kind of feels like Lent 2020 never ended, we have made it through an entire church year since then, many of us figuring out ways to celebrate the seasons in new and different ways. Once we have an entire years worth of recordings, can we just point people toward last year’s? No? Okay. So we preach once again.
And so, preachers, what will you say? What do your people need to hear? The Narrative Lectionary has the Good Samaritan and Mary and Martha and Jesus (discussion here). The Revised Common Lectionary has Mark’s Baptism/Temptation/Ministry story as well as Noah’s ark and 1 Peter alluding to Noah’s ark (RCL discussion here). Maybe you are doing a series or going off lectionary in some other direction.
Whether you are preaching Narrative Lectionary, Revised Common Lectionary, or something else altogether, we are here to help. What do you need? Sermon illustrations? Time with the Children? A way to wrap things up? People to help you untangle ideas or find commentary? Let us know; we will help as we can.
Meanwhile, my daughter baked a Funfetti cake for her birthday yesterday, so I have cake to share.
