Summer is pretty much here in my part of the world. For others winter is just around the corner. What we all share is the end of the Easter/Pentecost/Trinity cycle of special days and the entrance into that big, long (liturgically) green season of the year. What path are you taking?
Are you working with a special sermon series? Much of my summer preaching will be based on our congregation's (finally approved) core values and new mission statement.
Are you a diehard RCL gal or pal? If, so will you work with the centurion in Luke, asking am I worthy. Or Elijah or Solomon, where God's sovereignty prevails in the former and the foreigner is included in the latter? Maybe a Galatians series is in your sights.
The Narrative Lectionary folks might be starting in a Lord's Prayer series or working with one of the series from a previous year.
There are lots of paths before us, and we may be going in lots of different directions as we prepare to preach the Word this weekend, but there is one Spirit guiding us all along the way. May she visit you soon!!! Pop in the party by joining us in the comments. We'd love to hear which path you're taking and offer any support you may need!
