Sermon Help


I am preaching 4 times in the coming 2 months. I would love your help in one or two ways.

1. Suggest a Text I should preach on (and why you suggest that text)
2. Help me study it (if you live close by - come one in and study a text with me; if you live far away, email your study thoughts on it)

As a recent Trinity grad, I would suggest Ruth, unless John has already poured over that text. It has great themes of hope set in dark circumstances.

Or you could do a couple chapters of a Gospel. The pastor at Glenview EFC (near Chicago) did a summer series on Mark 6 and it was very good. He broke it into about 7 messages though. This series gave a real sense of Christ's mission and how his followers responded (or should have responded).

I think that Genesis 19:31-38 would present an excelent challenge. What do the Holy Spirit and Moses intend to present to the children of Israel in this passage and how in the world does it relate to the church in the 21st century? If you can't answer those questions in a week of study, you could always teach a moral lesson on not getting your dad drunk with a mind to produce a new nation! ;-)

Can't I get you to take this one off my hands Tim? Please!!!!!

Hey Tim...I discovered you via Voni's Home after she left a comment on my site.

Browsing through your website...and getting to know you. It's more challenging preaching not regularly because you are not able to go through an entire book of the Bible within a set period of time. Obviously...go with that which the Lord leads.

One idea would be to do a study on Joseph of the Old Testament. Even thought it's a number of chapters to go through...perhaps you could focus on different aspect of Joseph's character and God's plan being worked out in his willing servant's life.

Joseph is always a powerful example.

Also...I would encourage you to http://www.kindredcommunitychurch.org/

There are sermon's online from my former Pastor who died last year. Some great sermons...to inspire and encourage you.

Thanks Tim...I look forward to getting to know you through your blog.

Lord bless...Susan
