Lay Speaking Assignment?

Something else that’s happened in the interim between postings here is that I’ve become a lay speaker in the Methodist church.  That means that I can cover Sunday sermons when the pastor is out.

We have a new pastor in my church; she started on July 3 and, apparently, is already scheduling time off for later this month.  I’ve been asked if I want to speak and I’m thinking about it.  I’ve got to have a topic and the lectionary isn’t helping me right now.

Hmmm . . .
