Sermon Braindump Intro and Episode

For the past 10 weeks, I’ve been doing something new…something I haven’t posted here. Over the course of the summer season, I tried an experiment. I’ve been supplementing a weekly discussion of the assigned Lectionary Gospel text for the week that I hold during adult forums with a video. In the video I discuss the thought process that my weekly sermon preparation takes me through. Insights that I have garnered from the text and such. I include certain things that I’m thinking of including in the sermon itself…but it should be noted that this is not the sermon itself. Those I have been, and will of course continue, to post in audio and text form here in my blog.

But since this whole video thing has been going pretty well…and honestly I’ve found it really helpful for my own “sermonation” process…also known as my “percolation” period…I’ve decided that I’m going to continue doing it for the foreseeable future.

You can find all the videos on my YouTube channel.

There are a few other videos on there as well…quick little deals that I created in the past. Feel free to peruse them if you like, but no pressure.

This week I have posted episode number 10. This one is based on Matthew 13:31-33, 44-53. Like the rest of Matthew 13, its parables…but this time around, it’s multiple short ones (as opposed to individual long parables including explanations by Jesus featured the past two weeks).

In the video I explore just why Jesus choses to use parables…and just how “the kingdom of heaven” can be like so many different things all at the same time.

You can find the video here…I hope you enjoy Sermon Braindump Episode #10
