I am sitting in my study surrounded by mostly empty bookcases. They are waiting for the books I will bring home next week as I empty out my parish office. The only books I have at home are the ones that I kept for "last minute sermon research" and the ones I brought for this week's sermon.
But oddly, I don't really feel like researching.
As I am working on my last sermon that I will preach to Epiphany, will the people actually hear a sermon that is well-researched, or do they need to hear words that will comfort, look forward to the future, and speak of hope in a time of change? What would I want to hear when the world is being rocked?
Perhaps faith, hope, and love is the way to go.
