This is the 1st entry in a Series that walks through my Sermon preparation for Sunday (2007/12/09). If you want to read them in another order choose one of the following:
If anyone was reading recently, I was preparing a sermon for the 25th of November. I think my process and outline were going fairly well, but Saturday midday, my wife began to miscarry our child of a 12-week pregnancy. So I didn’t preach.
But I am set to preach soon – Advent 2.
Advent 2 is Peace.
I have actually decided to preach the BCP lectionary this time (This is Year A, and we are at the 2nd week of the Liturgical year – 2nd Advent as I said).
Here is the lectionary as the BCP sets it, slightly altered by either my rector or by myself:
Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19 (edited by Fr. Steve)
Romans 15: 4-13
My following entries will move through my thought process in working on the sermon, and will include bits of the reading at a time.
