Jesus' Way: September's Bread for the Preacher
Did you know that each month, the church relations department at Bread for the World produces a resource specifically for pastors? Whether you are searching for inspiration for a sermon you're writing, or just a lectionary enthusiast, Bread for the Preacher is for you.
In the month of September, the lectionary reminds us of core values and behaviors for followers of Jesus: pursuing God's will, integrating our inner and outer lives, refusing to show partiality based on money, and supporting other disciples. At the same time, the church program year begins again, schools start, and an election season demands attention.
In the midst of this busy-ness and the cacophony of campaign ads, how do we stay centered in Jesus' life-giving way? This month's lectionary commentators help us see the biblical texts and our own circumstances through a Godly lens.
Explore reflections on social hypocrisy, justice for the poor, discipleship, vindication, and power in this month’s readings on the website, where you can also sign-up to have the resource emailed to you each month.
