Doing a new thing
Looking ahead to Sunday, I was all set to preach on the gospel story from John, of Mary anointing Jesus with the expensive ointment - simply because it is my most favourite story in the whole of Scripture. However I'm preaching in a congregation whose minister has just moved on to pastures new and the Old Testament reading, from Isaiah, speaks of God doing a new thing - so appropriate for these people in their current situation. Thanks be to God for the lectionary and choices.
