Series II, Cycle C
John T. Ball, Richard Gribble, John B. Jamison, Clayton A. Lord, Jr., Donna Schaper
Paul and the other writers of the epistles were entrepreneurs for early Christianity -- and not only did they tirelessly spread the good news, but their pastoral letters are also a marvelous guidebook full of practical wisdom. Because their writers were called on to assist the early faith communities in coping with a variety of problems, the New Testament epistles are chock-full of timeless lessons on living the Christian faith. In this extensive anthology of enlightening sermons based on the Second Readings from Cycle C of the Revised Common Lectionary, five eminent preachers from diverse denominations apply the nourishing teachings of the epistles to today's complex challenges. With messages included for every Sunday and major celebration throughout the entire church year, there's a wealth of ideas and illustrative stories helpful for preaching, teaching, and meditation. These biblically grounded sermons shine the light of Christ on our often confusing world and proclaim the richness of God's truth, offering readers comfort and hope while challenging them to a more intense faith relationship with the almighty.

Cycle C Sermons for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany Based on the Gospel Texts
Derl Keefer
Every time Rev. Derl G. Keefer preaches a Christmas sermon, he asks himself the same question. Why did Jesus come to earth?

It's the question that Jesus' earthly parents, Mary and Joseph, must have asked themselves over and over. They struggled to understand why, when he was 12 years old, he would leave their care to join the scholars of the temple.

His answer served to refocus his own parents on who he really was."Did you not know," he asked them, "that I must be about my Father's business?"

The 15 sermons contained in Focus on Jesus will provide four answers to the question of why he came by revealing the nature of the Father's business as described in the Gospel of Luke

This Advent season, utilize Keefer's clear, simple teaching style in Focus on Jesus to help those seeking Jesus understand who he is, and to reignite the passion that first brought members of your congregation into his arms.

Cycle C Sermons for Pentecost through Proper 17 Based on the Gospel Texts
Dave Zuchelli
It is often challenging to discuss with new believers – or even seasoned believers – the meatiest parts of Christian theology. You can't exactly answer these questions in the course of an elevator ride.

"What is the Holy Spirit? How does it work?"

"What does it mean for God to be in three persons?"

"Are demons really in the world? What are Christians supposed to do about demon possession?"

Dave Zuchelli draws from the Gospels of Luke and John to give you tools to wrestle with these questions. Whether from the pulpit, in a small group or personal conversation, the sermons inWatch This!remind us to enter into discussion with humility. To sit with our guests at the last seat at the table.

The Lord will meet you there.
