I so agree with with Juniper from the Tuesday Lectionary Leanings. There are way too many good choices this week. How's a preacher to decide?
For those of us who love good "character" narratives this week is full of gems. Simon Peter gets a chance to redeem his denials. He also does a reverse skinny dip. If someone is addressing this naked fishing piece, PLEASE post it in the comments. Many of us are dying to know your take.
What about a comparison of Paul and Ananias? Paul's sudden conversion next to Ananias' steady faith and response. Here's a shot of one of my favorite sites from my Middle East trip (not my photo, though) - the chapel located at the traditional site of Ananias' house in Damascus.
The praise and poetry of the Psalm and Revelation reading are beautiful for preaching or praying. I know I used much of them in my liturgy, but look forward to seeing how others are inspired for preaching them.
Not sure about the rest of you, but our weather should be gorgeous later today. The morning is cool enough that I'm trying to find some legitimate excuses to keep away from the church clean-up day, but the rest of the day will compete with my attention for sure. Writing will be hard to accomplish, but as always, it will happen somehow!
Let us know what's going on with you today. What do you need from the community? We may be a little smaller today because of the Big Event, but the Spirit is with us as well as them. We'll share what we can!
See you in the comments!
