Sermons


My co-worker and fellow blogger shared this article with me in which the columnist challenged people, in the new year and the new decade, to look at a few things through fresh eyes. The writer listed 52 suggestions, one for every week of the year. This week’s topic is Sermons.

“So much of preaching is not about finding the new, but reminding people of what is already known, but too soon forgotten.”

I love those kind of sermons — the ones that remind me of something I already knew but just needed reminding of. Or the ones that show me a new way of applying something I already knew. They are very affirming, and as someone who struggles with resting in what I know I need affirmation from time to time. After such sermons or lessons in small group I often find myself saying, “Duh! You knew that!”
