October is an odd oasis in the liturgical rhythms of many churches. Some focus on stewardship; but for many, October is the last breath before the holiday season to come and the changing of liturgical seasons and years. To fill this space, then, we present a worship series titled “Not Ashamed” based on the Epistle readings through the month of October. The lectionary walks through the second epistle to Timothy, giving us some of the highlights of this powerful but short letter. This October can be the perfect time to help the congregation along the discipleship path by shoring up their faith with a worship series designed to help declare that we are not ashamed.
