This morning I preach at the 8:00 service. I have never published the text of a sermon on this blog before. It’s “Show Your Work Sunday,” though, so here’s a draft. It may yet be revised before I preach it in three hours. The 18 point arrangement of the Scripture reading is at the top.
It clocks in at just over 1900 words and follows much more of a verse-by-verse structure that I’m used to doing.
I also designed a discussion guide for our Confirmation class small groups on the Holy Spirit. Since a friend urged me to simplify my lesson writing by using the Hook, Book, Look, Took template I’ve been doing that and finding it effective.
