Feasting With Jesus
I don't publish sermons very often. For one thing, I don't want to pitch my sermons to people that are not in my congregation. If I know that my sermons will be heard by people I don't know, in cities I've never visited, then I will constantly worry about everything I say. And eventually, of course, I will end up preaching not to the local congregation, but to a more general audience. Way too many pastors fall into that trap. Besides, I just don't want to be constantly thinking about how some critic could misunderstand and twist my words. But, alas, occasionally I throw caution to the wind and post a new one. Here's a sermon in my series on the Gospel of Luke. The passage is Luke 5:27-39. Rip it to shreds.
