Issue 19 (Pentecost through to end of August) is now out and available
Last summer the Spill the Beans Team took a bit of a breather to get a little ahead of our usual timetable. This summer, however, we have been very good to all our fellow Bean Spillers and have a full bumper issue covering the summer, with 162 pages of ideas and resources. For those of you who are now devotees of the Narrative Lectionary you will know that it takes a break over the summer months. However Luther Seminary suggests some summer short programmes that can be used, we have based this issue on those.
There are three programmes based around 2 Corinthians, Job and the Lord's Prayer (Luke 11). While we have followed the suggested weekly pattern provided by Luther Seminary, it goes without saying that you can change these around depending on your circumstances. We found them challenging but rewarding to investigate and are sure you will find much to get your teeth into as congregations.
This issue extends from 22 May to 4 September 2016. The following issue 20 will embark on year 3 of the Narrative Lectionary and is already being written.
