For the last two months, I've been working on a writing assignment for GBOD Worship - sermon preparation ideas for the Hope is On the Way Advent Series I helped to put together for my faith family at FUMC Arlington.
It was a tall assignment, working out seven sermons a couple of months out, but it was a really fun project and a blessing to get this opportunity!
The GBOD published it all today! So, if you're looking for a little bit of help with your sermon preparations for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, I hope you'll check out what we've offered. With these notes, I also wrote out a few ideas each week for you to discuss with your worship planning team, questions to ask and ideas for you to own your worship this season and glorify God in your context. Combine them with the liturgy resources we have, and it's a comprehensive resource to serve your congregation! It's all free, but I'd love for you to comment if any of this is of help to you, or if you have a different perspective than from what I've given!
Blessings as you plan!
