This will be the last morning at the Festival of Homiletics. It has been a wonderful week, a mountaintop experience. Over and over, by different speakers in varied manners, I have heard an articulation of the Good News that sings for me. Lectures on preaching have challenged me to seek new understandings of what I do each week and why. The well-known in preaching circles have urged those of us more ordinary not to expect the famous to do all the work, but to pray and to preach and to bring about change ourselves.
I feel challenged and equipped and humbled.
Being with my RevGal friends: what riches!
On Wednesday morning, James Forbes of Riverside Church had us all stand and sing “Jesus Loves Me.” And while we sang the refrain, we stood with our arms making a cup in front of us, to hold the love.
My cup runneth over.
