We are about half way though the actual "12 Days of Christmas." In our church, the candlelight service is now a sweet memory, while the Advent wreath and the Christmas tree will remain lighted through January 6. In our household, we have finished off the leftovers from the Christmas feast. Many of you had a white Christmas -- or a very white Christmas! Here in south Louisiana, it's just wet.
What direction will your preaching take this week?
I'm working with Christmas 1C (Luke 2:41-52) and the young Jesus engaging the teachers in the Temple while worrying his parents.
You might be reflecting on the past year or the year to come. Or does your congregation have a special worship service for the New Year?
Some RevGals might be taking a vacation week. Several are in transition to a new call or a new setting.
What are you looking forward to? Most especially, are you making any preaching or worship plans for the season(s) coming up? Any reflections on how your preaching and worship leadership is evolving?
WELCOME to our last Preacher Party for 2012! Let's have fun with it!
Help yourselves to the never-ending supply of fair-trade organic coffee, hot cocoa, and all kinds of tea bags. Add a Christmas treat to the snack table.
Pull up a chair, get out that keyboard, and let's get this party started!
