As I write this Preacher Party it is 8pm at night and storming outside, unusual this late in the year for me on the east coast of Australia.
And the power went out …… for a few hours.
Now it is a sunny new day, with clear blue skies.
Back to the Preacher Party.
I pray you all have an idea, at least, of where you are going this Sunday. In the last few weeks we have had a few special services, so I am looking at the whole of Galatians this Sunday, but we are not reading all 6 chapters 😊 I am weaving the letter through the service, starting with the opening as the Call to Worship and the beginning of chapter 6 as the Word of Mission/Benediction.
Maybe you are preaching witness or electing church leaders from the Revised Common Lectionary. See Alicia Hager’s post for lots of ideas
Those who follow the Narrative Lectionary, like me, will be navigating Galatians, here is Rev. Joanna Harader’s post from earlier in the week.
The Preacher party is how I came to know of RevGalBlogPals, and the reason I have a blog was so I could join. Sermons are 99% of my blogging. Over the years I have appreciated the ideas, prayers, and companionship as I wrote on Saturday evening, and revised on Sunday morning. Your ideas for sermons, prayers, and children’s talks are always welcome here, as are your questions.
Let the party begin!
