11th Hour Preacher Party: A Fire That Doesn't Go Out
It's one of my favorite Sundays in the church year tomorrow, Pentecost. The texts are replete with images for preaching.
Where is the Spirit moving you?
Will you speak of Peter and the disciples?
Will you land the hard reading on a liturgist, or do the full Cappadocia yourself?
Or will you explicate the Tower of Babel, or share the Roman understanding of adoption so crucial to comprehending Paul's letter?
It's not even nine o'clock in the morning where I am, so there's plenty of time for inSpiration to carry the day.
I'm laying the table with bagels, cinnamon rolls, orange juice, bananas, grapes and, of course, coffee served up in a "Does This Pulpit Make My Butt Look Big?" mug.
Happy Birthday of the Church! Let's start the party now!
