|A walk on the beach|
This summer I've simply journeyed with the Lectionary gospel readings, offering brief reflections each week. This will be my last Sunday of that and I'm pleased at the gospel that I get to finish up on. The story of the woman bent over to whom Jesus brings healing, encouraging her to stand up straight on the sabbath.
Tuesdays Lectionary Leanings provide a good starter for this weeks readings - from Isaiah, Jeremiah, Hebrews or Luke.
I'm looking forward to getting back to the old schedule of later worship and longer ramblings. Sometimes its harder to preach for a shorter time - or maybe its because I don't spend as much time preparing as I should in the summer.
Where are you? Still in that space between summer worship and getting back on schedule? Or do you maintain momentum all the year round? And how are you fixed for preaching this week? Are you bent over with the burden of the task or standing up straight, lightened by the gift of words to preach? Come and party with us as we share what we have and ask for what we need so that, together, we can "walk those dogs proud".
