It's back to the routine now, isn't it? Sunday School resumes this week at the church I serve, many congregations will be starting up the program year, and for many of us that means bigger crowds in worship. Time to really bring the preaching A-game right?
That last question was facetious. I know that each and every one of us brings the A-game every week!
This week's lectionary passages feature a text I have never preached--Philemon. I am intrigued by this story of restoration and of redemption. What word of grace might this letter be for our congregations?
Or maybe you are going with the Potters wheel, the promises of Deuteronomy, or that heavy cross to carry. What are you pondering this week?
