Lenten Dialogues For Lectionary Cycle B
Roger E. Timm

Useful for a midweek Lenten gathering, a Sunday worship service, a retreat setting, or private and group devotionals, Acting Out the Messages of Mark and John relies on simple dialogue and staging as it introduces us to biblical characters such as Peter and his wife, Anna; St. James the Less and his parents, Alphaeus and Mary; Nicodemus; Jairus; and Mary of Bethany. Timm imagines each character's response to their immersion into the often-surprising narrative of God's kingdom, and he reveals ancient questions that many within today's church still ponder: Who is this man named Jesus? What is our response to divine forgiveness? What does Jesus' resurrection mean for us?

Cycle C Sermons for Lent/Easter Based on the Gospel Texts
Susan R. Andrews

Preaching is a privilege. To dare to proclaim the living word of God is to engage in the mysterious work of incarnation. And so, preaching takes both courage and humility. Nothing trivializes God more than a sloppy sermon or a lazy preacher. Our people are starving for a nourishing word, and we dare not feed them junk food.
— from the Preface

The reader of these meditations, based upon the gospel lessons for Cycle C of the Revised


Six Midweek Monologues and Services for Lent
Beth Huener
In The Word Has Come Down, Huener guides participants through the ashes of repentance of Ash Wednesday, journeying through Lent to the Last Supper of Maundy Thursday and the crucifixion of Good Friday, culminating in the revelation of the risen Jesus at Easter. Along the way, Huener stops to look at each of the main characters in these events, people like Caiaphas, Peter, Judas, Pontius Pilate, and the women at the tomb, allowing each one to tell their side of the story.

Messages For Good Friday
Maurice A. Fetty
For centuries, the cross has been the central symbol of Christianity -- and the ”Seven Last Words” of Jesus have been indelibly etched into the Christian conscience as these words remind us of the pain and torture that Jesus faced on our behalf. But

Lenten Sermons Comparing Jesus And Job
