Tripp joins Daniel for a discussion of this coming Sunday’s lectionary texts. In the conversation you will discover just what Isaiah’s call story has to do with the Trinity, delve into the Biblical notion of ‘glory’ and explore the invitation to participate in the divine life. Daniel will give a special shout out to youth ministers and Tripp will insist that God has refused to the be God without us.
The texts for the week are Isaiah 6:1-8, Psalm 29, Romans 8:12-17, and John 3:1-17
#LectioCast aims to get your sermon/service prep jumpstarted by homing in on crucial issues and themes in the passages and talking through possible opportunities and issues in preaching the various texts. We’ll aim for Lectionary commentary that is sharp and practical, maybe seasoned with a pinch of snark.
