How do we preach to a world of visual learners? It may be a contemporary expression of what Paul called the foolishness of our preaching I Cor. Add to the foolishness of how we preach the question of what we preach.

The writer assumed that theology has become the esoteric interest of a few reclusive professors who are puttering around in musty libraries, tucked away in some back corner of the university.

This is a book of sermons, that strange form of verbal communication that occurs in the context of Christian worship, growing out of the life of a local congregation. Sermons ought to be heard, not read. This is auditory communication reduced to printed form. I hope that you will attempt to hear these sermons rather than read them. Their purpose is theological, attempting to help laypersons wresde with the central affirmations of the Christian faith. I have preached these sermons in worship at St.
Luke's United Methodist Church at Windermere, a twelve-yearold congregation serving the exploding southwest corner of Orange County, Florida. At least one third of our people were not active in any church prior to coming here. Many grew up in the church as children, but left that experience behind with their high school diplomas.
Some were burned by overly zealous charismatic or fundamentalist preachers. A significant number represent that growing percentage of our population that has no religious background at all. A majority are related to the tourist industry or are directly employed at the Walt Disney World or Universal Studios theme parks. They are, therefore, oriented toward visual, creative communication, all of which offers an exciting, demanding challenge to a preacher. While preaching these sermons, I led a sermon talkback group for faithful skeptics in which nothing was so sacred that it could not be questioned.
The group convinced me that people are interested in theology. They do care about what they believe. They are not interested in arid discussions of abstract concepts,. This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue? Upload Sign In Join. Save For Later. Create a List.
