Chris Henry: Faith in a Seed

Mark 4:26-34

4th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

June 17, 2018

The Rev. Christopher Henry (PCUSA)

 

"With many such parables, he spoke the word to them. He did not speak to them except in parables."

The words of Mark seem to summarize the preaching ministry of Jesus. Time and again in the gospels, Jesus gathers a crowd of followers together and speaks to them, not in propositional assertions, creedal statements, or enumerated lists but through these vivid and memorable narratives.

Rob Lee: Dear Uncle John - Suicide and the Love of God

The Rev. Robert Lee (UCC)

Dear Uncle John, I lashed out the other day because of your life, because of my life, because of our shared experience surrounding suicide. I dropped the F-bomb to a guy who tried to say you and others who committed suicide were in hell. It came as a surprise to many on Twitter. The tweet now has some 219 thousand likes and I’ve found both critique and celebration in my language.

Charley Reeb: Why We Loved the Royal Wedding Sermon: A Homiletical Analysis of Bishop Michael Curry’s Sermon

The Rev. Dr. Charles Reeb (UMC)

Over the last few days it seems the whole world has been talking about a 14 minute sermon. In addition to being encouraged by the world’s response to this gospel message, I believe preachers can learn a great deal from Bishop Curry’s sermon. There are important homiletic elements to Curry’s message that made it so effective. Below you will find the full transcript of the sermon along with my commentary.
