Greetings all. Where I am, in Scotland, the end of August marks the end of summer; there is a definite hint of Autumn (Fall) in the air… misty mornings, golden fields, trees beginning to turn – it all just puts changing seasons into the mind. I have just returned to work after two weeks of vacation – it was lovely just the right blend of family and friends, good food and total down time. I should be relaxed and ready for anything – truth to tell, after a morning of dealing with emails, calls and decisions on what to do next in church to keep everyone safe (coffee hour? 1m, 0m, free for all?) I am exhausted!
Sunday is just around the corner and I have to get my ducks in a row so I can let everyone know what I need from them for worship this week. This is the wrap up week from my summer preaching series on Moses in the Wilderness. Next week is back to the RCL for me. Where are you all at? Do you follow a lectionary? Your own series or something else? Whatever it is, we can do this together! Share your thoughts, your ideas, your celebrations and your frustrations here in the comments – this is your space for support and supporting.
Once you get your sermon, or liturgy on the way, if you use a blog share links in the comments below; it is always a joy to share and know we are not alone.
