Tuesday Lectionary Leanings: "On Fire" Edition
The Texts This Week
The Festival of Pentecost -- as many of us tell our Sunday School kids, it's the "birthday of the Church." Yet the tame flames of candles on a birthday cake are nothing like the dramatic fire and wind of the Spirit visiting the people of God in powerful and unpredictable ways.
What text(s) will you use as a thematic anchor for your sermon this coming Sunday, and why? Discuss!
And -- bonus points -- let us know if you're planning any special worship elements -- visual, choral, liturgical -- for this important Sunday in the life of the church.
