Whether it's true in the air, or on the trees with their multi-colored leaves, or even just on the calendar, fall is here, at least on this side of the globe. I understand there are still some areas of the hemisphere that haven't had the blustery weather we're having up here, but I can hardly remember what those kinds of Septembers are like. Whatever the weather, usual or out of the ordinary, the seasons are changing and fall is upon us.
For some this means stewardship season for others a season of creation. In our communities and churches we are welcoming folks back for the homecoming season. What will they be hearing when they walk into your church this weekend? The lectionary continues along in Luke with a "rich" parable of the rich man and Lazarus. The prophets Jeremiah or Amos are up in the Old Testament. Psalm 91 will have some folks singing "On Eagle's Wings" I'm sure. Do you feel like you're being carried? 1 Timothy warns about excess and harmful desires.
There's a lot here in the Scriptures for all of us and if Tuesdays posts were any indication we are headed in many different directions! Join the party and share where you're headed both today and in your sermon. Maybe we have a few things to share with one another.
