Sometimes following the Lectionary is like a sunny day where you shout, “Thanks, God! I really needed to hear this!”. At other times, the Lectionary is a bit abrasive, and you feel like finding the smokey room where the mighty Lectionarians make their decisions and chasing them with a pitchfork for several minutes.
Three guesses as to where Common Table finds itself this Sunday…
But we will not be cowed! We will not run away! We will not pull the blankets up over our head on Sunday morning! Oh no!
Join us on Sunday at 10:15am at Church of the Good Shepherd as we wrestle with some optimistic and (can I say?) simplistic Bible passages– good and true things which nevertheless often come into conflict with our actual lived experiences.
PS. Mark your calendars for next Sunday, September 15 when we will continue our process of congregational discernment as we begin the process of closing down Common Table. Thanks be to God.
