of a new liturgical year, we always include a segment called 
"Lectors Unleash" where some of our lectors give testimonies

The Joy of Preparation
In his best seller, How to Argue and Win Every Time, 
trial lawyer Gerry Spence, known for never losing a 
criminal case, called preparation "wading into life, 
languishing in it, rolling in it, embracing it, smearing 
it over oneself, living it as a child at play." Can we, 
as proclaimers of God's word, wade into our readings, 
embrace, languish and play in them?... Read More
