It's Saturday morning. Do you know where your sermon is?
I had an inspiration earlier in the week to write a four-voice drama to go in the sermon slot tomorrow. At the moment, however, I have only three readers, so I either need to change my plan to include a different reader (playing a whole new character), or I need to bag the whole thing and write a sermon.
I'm using two of the lectionary texts, 2 Samuel 1:1, 17-27 and Mark 5:21-43. My thought was to hear these voices, two male and two female, telling of their brokenness and the healing that came from it, then to move to the Communion table and speak for a few minutes about how our healing comes from Jesus' willingness to be broken. The characters are David, Jairus, the Woman Who Touched Jesus' Garment and A Mother who we eventually realize is the Earth.
The trouble is, I have no one to read Jairus.
Also, I haven't finished writing the piece yet...
Consider this an open thread in which to share where you are, or aren't, to ask for encouragement, or to offer support. Some of us have done this informally via e-mail on Saturday nights, and we want to extend the love when it is needed!!
Leave a comment and let us know how it's going for you today.
