GENESIS 2:18-24
PSALM 8
HEBREWS 1:1-4; 2:5-12
MARK 10:2-16

Just last Sunday I was telling a visitor why I value preaching through the lectionary. I said something super cheery like, “I never have to dream up a topic or a passage, because they’re determined by the Church calendar and the cycle we’re in (“Year B” this year). I actually really like that.”

May have spoken too soon. Monday morning I read this week’s Gospel.
So, besides the level ground at the foot of the cross, you and I may have other common ground this week:

I don’t really want to preach this sermon...and I’m betting you don’t really want to hear it.
