Spring and Summer at EFUMC

Well, I finished my worship planning. All these sermons and services are now simmering in the stockpot on the back burner of my mind. In case anyone is interested in what I'm preaching on, here is the whole megillah.

Evangelical Protestants were just coming to grips with the lectionary when I was in seminary. Somehow, I never caught the bug for it. Instead of disciplining myself to follow and exegete set passages, I instead devote several days to working my way through the liturgical seasons and assembling courses of readings and sermons within given planning periods. In other words, I'm doing a lot of the heavy lifting done for you by the lectionary; but that's way my mind grapples with it.
