Preaching Schedule for 2015

Every year in the fall, I try to get away and prepare for the upcoming material that we, as a church congregation, will be learning. I try to select the texts from which I’ll preach, read through them, and come up with basic themes which will guide my preparation time in the coming year.

Every other year, the idea was to submit to the discipline of using the Revised Common Lectionary, as a way to ensure that our congregation isn’t just studying texts that are *my* personal favorites. The Lectionary texts are used all over the world, and it’s always a bit of a challenge to read through them all, and seek guidance on what we’ll study together as a church body.

If you’re really interested, you can go to The Revised Common Lectionary at Vanderbilt to see what texts we’ll be using for the particular day.

Here are the themes and texts we’ll be using in 2015:
