I'm not sure who here preaches each week, and how many among those folks use the lectionary, but I'd be glad for another forum to share preaching ideas. Just offer your ideas here!

For 9/2/12 I'm thinking that I'll combine themes from James 1:17-27 & Mark 7:1-23 and go with "The holiest work requires getting your hands dirty." I've been thinking of the super dramatic way this true (ie. Mother Teresa), the dramatic (i.e. the Katrina clean up that I did with my son), and the most challenging, non-dramatic (i.e. cheerfully cleaning the toilets and drains for the people you live with). I've also been thinking about "The Great Exchange" - Christ came into the midst of a corrupt people, and gave us his righteousness in exchange for our sinfulness. He showed us that loving those who are broken or sullied, does not corrupt us, but lets us share in His joy.

Where do you think you'll go this week?

Get up offa that thing! - James Brown

"The place to improve the world is first in one's own heart and head and hands. "
- Robert M. Pirsig

"Christ has no body now but mine. He prays in me, works in me, looks through my eyes, speaks through my words, works through my hands, walks with my feet and loves with my heart."
- St. Theresa
