Putting together a new key-note address each week is a huge undertaking. No matter how much experience you have in crafting your weekly message, whether years or only months, every pastor needs help now and then. Even renowned preachers need fresh approaches, new perspectives and illustrations that are current and get the listeners’ attention.

  • Shouting Joy to the Storm by Schuyler Rhodes – 17 messages based on the Cycle C Gospel readings for Ash Wednesday through the the Ascension.
  • A Rebellious Faith by Mark Ellingsen. Ellingsen’s homilies based on the Cycle C Second Readings for Ash Wednesday through the the Ascension.

These resources will bolster your preaching, reduce your preparation time and more importantly help to encourage and enhance the faith of your parishioners.
