Sermons

The following are published with the following warnings:

(1)  Sermons are meant to be delivered, and are composed with this in mind.  Sermons that are read and not heard are often found to be wanting compared to those that are heard.

(2)  In addition, sermons are delivered in the context of a whole worship service, the various parts of which complement one another in the explication of a theme.

(3) Finally, the sermon that is heard, more often than not varies, sometimes significantly,  from the one that has been prepared.

What follows, in chronological order (oldest first, latest last), are the essences of sermons, but not necessarily the sermon as delivered. Rev. Bob will ask the reader to explore with him a  theme suggested by the readings for the day, and taken up in his sermon, and in the process, perhaps answer some questions and pose others for the reader to ponder.
