The season carries on and so does worship. What are you preaching these days? What do your people need to hear?
Depending on our hemisphere, we are in the midst of summer or winter this week. U.S.-ans and Canadians have made our way through our national holidays, and we continue on in Ordinary Time as we will for many, many weeks. What will you preach this week? How can we help?
During this long stretch, will you follow the Revised Common Lectionary? How do we preach the death of John. the Baptist? Or David dancing before the Lord? Or Amos and the plumb line? The RCL discussion is here this week.
Are you working through a series? We’d love to hear what you are doing.
Are you supply preaching for someone on vacation? If so, how can we help?
And so, preachers, what will you say? What do your people need to hear?
Whether you are preaching Revised Common Lectionary, a series, 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 (as I am able) today and tomorrow and continue checking in through Saturday night.

Trying to get back into the practice of regularly writing – looking at the Revised Common Lectionary for 7/11, I am thinking about the questions that come from reading the lectionary. Why did Uzziah die? Why was Michal mad at David? The answers to such questions lie in looking at more than just the readings but in the other material. What does this say for our lives today? We have these questions so why are we not looking deeper into what is happening?
I think looking at all the people involved and asking “why” about stories like this is important. I’ll be interested in how you answer your questions. –Wendy
