Just a Moment!

Conversations on life

      The listed link mini sermons are designed to fit an A5 pew bulletin, news sheet, parish paper, etc. They are presented in a print-friendly 10pt Times format. Each is a reflection on life, viewed in the light of the gospel.
      Each observation touches lightly on some life situation. No subject is sacred, and of course no subject is without a Word from God. So, the conversations will often draw out a Biblical truth, a Biblical comment on these day-to-day observations. They touch on the gospel, theology, churchmanship, ethics, politics, etc.
      Many of the conversations have been published in local newspapers in Sydney Australia, but remain free for use, either in their present form or edited to suit a new setting. Most adopt a generalized style, but some have a particular denominational, theological, political, personal or geocentric slant. Feel free to copy and edit as required.

    The cartoon was drawn by Dan Pegoda and is one many illustrations found in "101 things to do during a Dull Sermon", written by Tim Sims and published by Monarch Books. A great little book to remind preachers that the task of listening to sermons can become a work of supererogation.
