Tuesday Lectionary Leanings: Treasures on earth, etc.
"The Rich Fool" by JESUS MAFA, a a response to the New Testament readings from the Lectionary by a Christian community in Cameroon, Africa. Each of the readings were selected and adapted to dramatic interpretation by the community members. Photographs of their interpretations were made, and these were then transcribed to paintings. See: www.jesusmafa.com and www.SocialTheology.com. Source: Heard Divinity Library at Vanderbilt University
Readings for the coming Sunday may be found here.
Will you be pondering the Hosea text...in which the heavenly parent laments in terms that the human parent of a teenager might well understand?
Or perhaps Ecclesiastes..."Vanity of vanities...all is vanity!"
or even Colossians, where we are adjured to seek the things that are above...where Christ is?
or the gospel...with the parable of the man who lays up many goods, and is told he is a fool?
Or even the Psalm?
There are rich treasures in these Words. What homiletical abundance will you store and share from them?
