This week’s Preacher Party gets started a day early to help those of you who may be writing for all of the Three Days. So whether you’re struggling to put words together for Maundy Thursday, or you’re putting the finishing touches on your Easter sermon, we are here for you!
As Rev. Dr. Rachael Keefe reminds us in this week’s RCL post, “It doesn’t matter how long you have been preaching these texts, you don’t have to find something new to say. We just need to find something truthful and authentic to share with our people …” And if you are preaching from the Narrative Lectionary, you might want to explore what it means to “look for the living among the dead” in our own contexts. Looking for liturgy? This week’s Worship Words might help.
However we can encourage and support one another through this week and into Resurrection joy, let’s do it! Very soon, we will get to say those words we’ve been longing to say for the past 40 days: “Christ is risen! Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!”
