Here we are mid-Eastertide. How will you shepherd your people this week? Where are you going with your sermon? How can we help?
The Narrative Lectionary offers Philip baptizing the Ethiopian Eunuch. The discussion from earlier this week is here.
Since it’s the 4th Sunday of Easter, it’s Good Shepherd Sunday in the Revised Common Lectionary. That discussion is here.
It’s also Earth Day this week. Is anyone focusing on that? If you’re meeting outside, as we are, it might be a chance to focus on Creation Care.
If you are working on an Eastertide series or otherwise off lectionary, let us know what you are doing.
If you are preparing to preach and still working on your order of worship, we offer Worship Words here.
And so, preachers, what will you say? What do your people need to hear?
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.
I will be checking in regularly today and tomorrow and continue checking in through Saturday night.

“Are we there yet?” for a sermon title as we live with the ongoing pandemic and are living into the call, including in I John 3 to love with deeds, not just words, as the Good Shepherd leads and feeds and cares.
With gratitude for all you revgalblogpals as you share your witness and words,
