Lectionary Lab Live

The Third Sunday in Lent, Year C (March 24, 2019)

For the Third Sunday in Lent, Delmer and John are willing to spread the manure for a half-hour or so; come along for the ride! Special musical guest is Jermaine Edwards performing Repentance Song

The Second Sunday in Lent, Year C (March 17, 2019)

For the Second Sunday in Lent, the Bubbas are talking Herod the Fox along with Abraham and his "parts is parts" encounter before God. Interesting stuff! Appropriately, our musical guest is Mark Snow performing his Theme Song from the X-Files (aka, The Illuminati Song). 

The First Sunday in Lent, Year C (March 3, 2019)

As we begin the Season of Lent, we'd like to say that Delmer and John are committing to a whole new vein of serious conversation and decorum for the podcasts for the next several weeks. We'd like to say that, but it's just not true! Seriously, though -- we love these texts and the work that preachers do each week preparing to preach them. So, here's our best effort for this week. We close today with a nice presentation of an Ira Stanphill classic chorus, It's Jesus and Me.  

Sunday of the Transfiguration, Year C (March 3, 2019)

On this Sunday of the Transfiguration, John and Delmer are NOT transformed but they do make an honest effort at talking the texts and thinking about planning a sermon. Musical guests are the Pure Heart Quartet singing Have a Little Talk with Jesus

The Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C (February 24, 2019)

It has been an extraordinarily long season of Epiphany (thanks to the late Easter this year) but the Bubbas are hanging in there with you! The discussion today on rarely preached-on texts includes a great section from Luke's account of the Sermon on the Plain as well as Delmer's "tenuous" tie of the week for the 1 Corinthians passage. Guest musical artist is Matthew West performing Forgiveness

The Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C (February 17, 2019)

For the Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany, Delmer and John "come down" with Jesus to consider Christ's words to the apostles, disciples, and the crowd from his sermon on a plain. It's plain good stuff, as we also enjoy the songwriting skill of Woody Guthrie performing I Ain't Got No Home

The Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C (February 10, 2019)

For the Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany, it's fishin' tales and stuff! Bubba and Bubba talk the texts and preaching whilst Trace Adkins performs Just Fishin'.

The Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C (February 3, 2019)

For the Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany, Delmer and John are considering the conclusion of a real cliff-hanger of an episode from the gospel. (Did you see what we did there? You may groan now.) Special musical guest is Diana Ross, performing the lilting tune Do You Know?

The Third Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C (January 27, 2019)

For the Third Sunday after the Epiphany, Bubba and Bubba are talking 'bout great poetry, great texts, and how to make preaching great again (just kidding on that last one!) Tune in for passionate discussion and some great music from Aretha Franklin (who performs the gospel classic, Mary, Don't You Weep). Also, listen at the end for an announcement about a Lectionary Lab Workshop coming up in March -- let us hear from you!

The Second Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C (January 20, 2019)

For the Second Sunday after the Epiphany, the boys are talking texts and sermon ideas inspired by the water turned into wine! Special musical guests are Southern Raised performing a gospel music classic, Beulah Land
