|When the Bible gives you lemons...|
And yet, it's the parts of the readings that make me go "What the heck is that about?" that I find most compelling to preach on. Maybe it's because they're the parts of the Bible that I can't pretend to already know and understand. All I know is that when I preach on what at first looks easy, I tend to get insipid sermons and when I preach on the hard stuff, I'm often more inspired.
