Sermons

By | July 23, 2007

From Facing the ChallengeA few weeks ago, David Couchman posted a thought provoking article about sermons. This extract will give you a flavour of what he had to say:

 …when you think of a sermon as a particular kind of rhetorical act – a 35 minute monologue, from a pulpit, in a church building, on a Sunday, by a minister – you really can’t find this in the Bible at all. No pulpits. No buildings. Very few monologues, and (apparently) very few paid staff.

Interestingly, David followed up this article with one of the best sermons I’ve heard in a long while. You can listen to his exposition on Jeremiah  20, entitled ‘Angry with God’, here.
