Dont tell the Lectionary Police but I am venturing off the lectionary for Lent and doing a sermon series on the Lord's Prayer. Out of seminary I thought the lectionary was the best thing since Buffalo Wing Flavored Pretzels. But after five/six years of the lectionary and greater knowledge of where the congregation is at I decided to break from the guided lections. For Lent I asked folk to submit their burning religious questions. Interestingly they all revolved or directly touched the petitions in the Lord's Prayer, so I am doing a series on the Lord's Prayer. The Lenten-Easter Season works out great.
Ash Wednesday - Our Father who art in heaven
1st Sunday of Lent - Hallowed be thy name
2nd Sunday of Lent - Thy Kingdom Come
3rd Sunday of Lent - Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven
4th Sunday of Lent - Give us this day our daily bread
5th Sunday of Lent - and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors
Palm Sunday - and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
Easter - for thine is the kingdom and power and glory forever. Amen.
So well see.
