That’s something I often tell guys in homiletics class: always be ready to preach, whether you’re scheduled or not. Just because you aren’t on the schedule doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t find yourself in the pulpit.
This morning was another lesson why.
Morning - Material - Blog - Years - Subject
But, to be safe, early this morning, I decided to print out some material I had posted on my blog a few years back on the subject of Laetare Sunday — just in case. I outlined in my head a few talking points on rose vestments, on reconciliation (tied to the second reading from St. Paul) and God’s mercy (the Prodigal Son). I figured, if I had to, I would have something to say.
