This, to me, is weird. My trial service, on which I will be reported to synod, is next Sunday 3 May. I looked at the lectionary readings today because I must choose hymns before Monday. The lectionary is exactly the same as for my trial service last year. I think both my sermons from last year are etched permanently in my memory. So, what do I do? Preach the same sermon and try to improve on my mark? Start afresh?
My instinct is disapointment because I always want a new challenge. But, it would be very good for me to rework the sermon and improve on it. Pity I never keep my notes! I suspect I may not have had notes for that service . . .no, I think I did.
