Ruth Gilmore has written a four-book series of children's sermons, published by Augsburg Fortress. Three of the books follow the three-year lectionary cycle of scripture readings as found in the Revised Common Lectionary. We are presently in cycle "A" of the RCL. Cycle "B" begins on the first Sunday of Advent, 2002.
"Saving the Ants" follows the current readings for Sundays, and "Sitting on the Rainbow" will follow the readings beginning in the Advent season. "Barefoot in the Snow" is the supplementary book of sermons for holidays, special times and topics; for example, it offers object lessons and sermons to use on or near holidays such as New Year's, Valentine's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and St. Patrick's Day. It also contains sermons dealing with diverse subjects such as tithing, conversion, media influence and the death of a child.
