Sermon Resources from the African American Lectionary

 
   A Service of Healing (For those suffering emotional distress, grief, divorce, and physical ailments) Sunday, January 13, 2008  Michael R. Lomax, Guest Lectionary Commentator. Associate Minister, Fifteenth Avenue Baptist Church, Nashville, TN. Lection - Revelation 22:1-5 (New Revised Standard Version) Description of the Liturgical Moment. "Healing services have provided African Americans the hope to endure racial discrimination, economic exploitation, and emotional trauma, debilitating physical illnesses, death, and ruptures in relationships. In certain contexts, the social conditions of African Americans have improved. Thus, some African Americans have access to various modes of physical, mental, and emotional healing, including advanced health care and various kinds of counselors. Still, healing services continue to be a mainstay in African American congregations, where worship leaders invite the community to look beyond problems to catch a glimpse of God’s plan for restoration." [Sermon].
 
   Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday (Beloved Community Day) Sunday, January 20, 2008  Herbert Marbury, Guest Lectionary Commentator Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible, Vanderbilt Divinity School. Lection - Amos 5:18-24 (New Revised Standard Version). Description of the Liturgical Moment, "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of the most influential leaders in recent world history. Still, the idea of a United States’ holiday recognizing his life and legacy sparked considerable controversy. In 1986, through the heroic efforts of his wife Coretta Scott King and other Civil Rights activists, former President Ronald Reagan declared the third Monday in January “Martin Luther King, Jr. Day,” the only federal holiday commemorating an African American." [Sermon].
 
   African Heritage Sunday Sunday, February 3, 2008  by Frank Thomas, Guest Lectionary Commentator. Pastor, Mississippi Blvd. Christian Church, Memphis, TN Lection – Genesis 9:18-28 (New Revised Standard Version). "(v. 18) The sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham was the father of Canaan. (v. 19) These three were the sons of Noah; and from these the whole earth was peopled. (v. 20) Noah, a man of the soil, was the first to plant a vineyard. (v. 21) He drank some of the wine and became drunk, and he lay uncovered in his tent. (v. 22) And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. (v. 23) Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and walked backwards and covered the nakedness of their father; their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. (v. 24) When Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his youngest son had done to him, (v. 25) he said, ‘Cursed be Canaan; lowest of slaves shall he be to his brothers.’ (v. 26) He also said, ‘Blessed by the Lord my God be Shem; and let Canaan be his slave. (v. 27) May God make space for Japheth, and let him live in the tents of Shem; and let Canaan be his slave.’ (v. 28) After the flood Noah lived for three hundred and fifty years. Description of the Liturgical Moment: Since their arrival in the Americas, persons of African descent have had to fight vehemently against the negative stereotypes of Africa as a backward continent and its descendants as backwards, lazy, and less intellectually capable than others." [Sermon]. 
 
 
 
   Anti-Incarceration Day Sunday, March 2, 2008  by Madeline McClenney-Sadler, Guest Lectionary Commentator Founder/President, The Exodus Foundation, Charlotte, NC. Lection - Luke 4:14-30 (New Revised Standard Version) Description of Liturgical Moment: "Prematurely, we rejoiced in our freedom on Watch Night. The thirteenth amendment outlawed one form of slavery and established the legitimacy of another. Section 1 of this amendment reads “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted [emphasis mine], shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." [Sermon]. 
 
 
 
 
   Jesus and Economic Justice Sunday, April 13, 2008 by Leah Carol Lewis, Guest Lectionary Commentator Ph.D. Student, Emory University, Atlanta, GA. Lection - St. Luke 18:18-27 (New Revised Standard Version). Description of the Liturgical Moment: "On the third Sunday after Easter the examination of Jesus' teachings in Luke’s Gospel continues (previous Lucan texts were explored at lectionary calendar moments 12-16) with reflection on Jesus’ discussion of money and what it takes to have treasure in heaven. In this often told story, a male Palestinian ruler comes to Jesus with an important question and leaves sad although he is a follower of the Mosaic Law and wealthy."  [Sermon].
 
   Earth Day  Sunday, April 20, 2008 by Gerald L. Durley, Guest Lectionary Commentator Pastor, Providence Missionary Baptist Church, Atlanta, GA. Lection - Genesis 2:15 (New Revised Standard Version). The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to till it and keep it. Description of the Liturgical Moment. On April 22, 1970, 20 million people gathered across the country to show their support for the environment on the very first Earth Day. In New York City alone, 10,000 people gathered for concerts, lectures and rallies. More than 2,000 colleges and universities switched from their ongoing anti-war protests to join in pro-earth celebrations. Even Congress recessed for the day. Earth Day was credited with putting environmental issues on the political map and launching the environmental movement in the United States. In 1990, Earth Day became a global event. Two hundred million people around the world staged dramatic displays of environmental support. In 2000, Earth Day entered cyberspace, with e-mails and live Web events bolstering participation." [Sermon].
 
   Jesus and Hip Hop Culture (Young Adult Sunday) Sunday, April 27, 2008 by Luke A. Powery, Guest Lectionary Commentator, Assistant Professor of Homiletics, Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, NJ. Lection - Revelation 5:1-14 (New Revised Standard Version) Description of the Liturgical Moment: "Jesus and hip hop have always had a relationship. Some religious folk have tried to end their marriage saying they had no business being together in the first place—the sacred has nothing to do with the secular they say. Others have felt led to rhyme and rap about Jesus, even though they don’t claim to be “Christian”—they say you can’t separate the sacred and secular because even Jesus knows about a cross, the lynching tree, dying gangsta style. Now, in some Christian musical camps, there is even gospel hip hop where the gospel message of Christ is key, more so than the boom-boom beat or bling-bling. Regardless of your view on hip hop, it is clear that Jesus and hip hop are married. Some segments of the black church have rightly endorsed this relationship in an attempt to engage youth culture and resources from this generation." 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   Stewardship of Time (Volunteerism) Sunday, July 20, 2008 by Lawrence T. Foster, Guest Lectionary Commentator. Pastor, Calvary Baptist Church, Detroit, MI  Lection - 1 Corinthians 4:1-13 (New Revised Standard Version) Description of the Liturgical Moment. "There are churches in the African American context that periodically recognize the contributions of deacons, trustees (stewards) and auxiliaries, and some extend recognition to the small army of outreach volunteers without which authentic ministry could not function. Even though every ministry needs financial resources to provide the “margin for mission,” the priceless investment of volunteers is what allows every local church to impact the community through feeding and clothing programs, after school tutorials, mentoring, senior adult advocacy, recovery/support groups and other needed services. Christian volunteers are the “doers of the Word” (cf. James 1:22 - NRSV) and the hands and feet of Jesus in the world."
