October 2016:   I have now
made my way through 2 complete cycles of the lectionary and have shared pretty
much what I have to offer.  So, from this
point forward I will no longer be adding fresh material.  I will, however, keep what is here
posted.  On Face...

Year C - Proper 28, 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, 26th Sunday after Pentecost (November 13, 2016)
In many ways this is the last
Sunday of the Lectionary Year.  Next
Sunday (Christ the King or Reign of Christ Sunday) is rather a hinge or bridge
between the two years.  At some point
during the service, point out the green paraments and other signs
of this...

Year C - Proper 27, 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, 25th Sunday after Pentecost (November 6, 2016)
There are choices
to be made by worship planners for this week because All Saints Day
falls on November 1, Tuesday in 2016. Some
congregations will celebrate All Saints on October 30 and tie it to Halloween
or celebrate it at a mid-week event at which all t...

Year C - All Saints Day Tuesday (November 1 or Sunday October 30 or November 6)
All Saints Day falls on Tuesday this year.  It could be celebrated with great creativity during
a mid-week gathering, but many congregations will celebrate it either on the
Sunday October 30 and tie it to Halloween or on Sunday November 6 and tie it to
the ...

Year C - Proper 26, 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time, 24th Sunday after Pentecost (October 30, 2016)
There are choices
to be made by worship planners this weekend. Halloween which is a high holy day for children is Monday
night, but will probably be celebrated in many communities throughout this
weekend.  Check out the note below about
how to recognize Hal...

Year C - Proper 25, 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 23rd Sunday after Pentecost (October 23, 2016)
Joel 2:23-32 >   Maybe the best connection for children is the visions
and dreams promised in verse 28. 
Identify dreams as possibilities and ideas about what could be.  Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech
illustrates the importance of a dream in s...

Year C - Proper 24, 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 22nd Sunday after Pentecost (October 16, 2016)
Today’s texts cluster around two major themes that are very
important to children – the importance of God’s Word, the Bible and the
possibility of wrestling with God.  So, I
have organized this post around those themes. 
The texts are all there but not in t...

Year C - Proper 23, 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 21st Sunday after Pentecost (October 9, 2016)
My goodness this IS an
overload Sunday.  It is the Sunday before
Thanksgiving in Canada and Children’s Sabbath in the USA.  The 2 Kings story of the healing of Naaman
and the gospel story of the healing of the 10 lepers appear several times in
the lectionar...

Year C - Thanksgiving Day (October 10, 2016 in Canada and November 24, 2016 in the United States)
I
suspect that in both Canada and the US Thanksgiving worship happens in a
variety of settings.  Some will read
these texts at community services.  Others might use them on the Sunday before
Thanksgiving instead of the Christ the King/Reign of Christ texts....
