Sermons

So, in September 2009 I was helping my best friend revise a liturgy for a "Service of Healing and Hope (on the occasion of National Coming Out Day)," and was curious to see if one could preach a NCOD sermon on the assigned lectionary (knowing that preachers go off-lectionary for non-lectionary occasions). Talking through the lectionary texts, I felt that one definitely could -- and having talked it through, I started writing the sermon. And then I turned into this person who writes a weekly sermon, just because she can.

I post them to my blog, but when I had the Easter 4C one recorded I needed a place to host that file, hence website, so that prompted me to create this list.

This is the liturgical order list, with numbers in brackets indicating the order in which I completed them. (Asterisks indicate sermons/reflections which were actually preached aloud in front of a congregation on the relevant date.)
