Sermon for Wednesday in Pentecost 9

August 15, 2014 Leave a comment

Tonight, I am indebted to another professor, this time from further away that St. Louis, Bishop NT Wright whose commentaries on the NT are very helpful for explaining and trying to speak with others about some rather challenging topics in the Scriptures.

Sermon for the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

August 15, 2014 Leave a comment

I’ve said before that this summer I’ve been working through some sermon material from Dr. David Schmitt from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.  So the thoughts behind these sermons and even the structure and images are certainly not my original thoughts.  Dr. Schmitt is one of those professors who has thought out how preaching needs to adapt to today’s more visually stimulated culture.  Many preachers won’t admit it, but preaching can often be too routine.  So I’ve been using his material to begin to see how I could write more in that groove in the future.

Sermon for the Weds after Pentecost 8

Acts 28:16-31

We went back to the NT this week, particularly because the theme was one that carried over from Sunday, Paul’s contention that Jesus was the Christ foretold in Moses and the prophets.

Sermon for the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

Romans 9:1-13

This summer, I’ve been working through the readings from Romans in our lectionary.  I’ve been using some sermon material from Dr. David Schmitt from Concordia Seminary who has helped me begin to rethink my preaching quite a bit.  We are such a visual people that images are very powerful.  It’s not the way I learned to preach and so after we’re done with Romans in September, I’m hoping to continue to develop images like he has taught me to.

Sermon for Wednesday after Pentecost 7

August 8, 2014 Leave a comment

1 Samuel 15:10-35

This sermon, like the previous Wednesday’s, is really more of a explanation of the the text with some application, rather than a classic “sermon” or homily with a consistent theme or central image.  After a year of doing these Wednesday services, I still haven’t figured what they are yet.  For some, they are the only contact with the church they have because of their situation in life, health or work schedules prevent them from attending on Sunday mornings.  For others, these services are in addition to their regular Sunday morning worship and can times of extended growth in God’s Word.  So we just continue to do a little bit of everything.
