Deal?

I do not want to hear, see or say the word 'transfiguration' again for a very, very, very long time.

Capiche?

Deal. Definitely.

Okay. I love it. And it's still a deal.

The preacher at my church managed to totally avoid the word yesterday although he did read the lectionary passage from Mark. Hmmmm.

You know, QG, I was going to skip it too and do the story of the friends of the paralytic from last week (we had a snow day that threw off the schedule) but the new lectionary feature on the revgalblogpal website and all the comments got me back into the 'T' word. Unfortunately I ran out of mojo before I ran out of sermon to do. Fortunately reverend mommy bailed me out with some great parallels to the crucifixion.

In the meantime, even my parishioners seemed bored by the topic... maybe it was just me.

Thanks for coming back again Songbird (sheepish blushing).

LOVE the graphic.

Our preacher talked about thin places. Didn't use the T word too much. But I totally understand how you feel.

I for one am glad that the Tuesday Lectionary Leanings helped.

Now if I could just wrap my tiny little brain around tomorrow's post...

In our church we had a teaching on fasting. I went to the Lutheran church and they must have a different lectionary (or used the wrong week) as the lessons were about love (1 Cor 13) and the story of the sons of Zeb wanting to sit on Jesus' right and left hand.

Part of the teaching was that Jesus couldn't give them that place because it was determined by the Romans who put one robber to the left and to the right of Jesus on the cross which was his moment of glory. It was interesting!
