After neglecting posting on this blog for way to long, I have decided to try and use it as an extension of my lectionary study work.
I have been using the Revised Common Lectionary as a guide to sermon choices for 15 years. The decision to do so is one of the best I have made in my spiritual journey as a pastor.
I also participate regularly in a study group with other local pastors who also follow the lectionary. This experience has also been very, very rewarding. By doing this, I am exposed to other perspectives on the passage that I might not consider.
The Gospel passage for this week is Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30.
First thoughts: Read the following post: http://aintsobad.typepad.com/aintsobad/ posted June 27, 2011.
Arrogance and ignorance. I posted a reply to the post at the above listed blog even before I read the lectionary passage for today.
In an age in which “information is power”, no wonder our churches are so weak.
I cannot decide which is the greater threat, ignorance by omission, or ignorance by commission? Either why we become open to the predators who thrive in such an environment.
This is the point I am going to start my preparation for this week. I love how our Lord works…
