Preachers, how are you bringing the Word to your congregations this week? So many of the readings reflect questions of identity. In the Narrative Lectionary, God says, “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14). The Revised Common Lectionary names Job, Christ’s brothers and sisters, as well as women and children – the “least of these.” Whether you’re asking “who is God to you?” or “who are you to God?” let’s offer one another help and encouragement. Need some words for World Communion Sunday liturgy? Check out the Worship Words offered by Rebecca Zahller McNeil. The party is on!
