Lectionary query - visiting preacher has chosen next week's Gospel text
12 January is the feast of the Baptism of Jesus. However, the visiting preacher has chosen this lectionary text on the baptism for 5 January (which SHOULD be "2nd Sunday after Christmas"). The question is: on 12 January, does one proceed as if the theme of the baptism for today (the 12th) had not been preached the previous week? Do I give the congregation a second attempt at addressing the same verse? Has anyone experience of this or similar? It is a small but educated congregation. They will notice. I am thinking up some solutions!
