settle down now

As much as I like to preach –and I do like to preach– sometimes it is just hard work.  Fragments of ideas flirt and dance, but refuse to settle in any lasting relationship.

All this probably because my mind was more engaged with a funeral sermon than with the lectionary.

Let us hope that the Spirit is planning on busy morning.

  1. I don’t think people realise how hard it is to preach every single Sunday. Especially in your first Charge when you have had a curacy of only preaching once a month (in my case). Get those invitations out to old friends to come and preach for you. They have to agree to come to all your churches and then lunch afterwards. Preaching help and company too!
