Ideas for preaching
A message from Susan
I’m Susan Cartmell and I believe preaching can change the world.
I don’t say that because I have been preaching for over 30 years. Or because I think I’m the best preacher that ever lived.
I say it because I have seen people changed by preaching in ways that were powerful for the Church and for me as a preacher.
I say it because I have seen people start down a new path because of a sermon.
Too often our message gets lost. When we tell the story of faith through the limited lens of the Lectionary we lose people. When I started preaching with Biblical themes people learned the lessons of faith more easily. Today’s audience has a short attention span. We need to make our message intuitive.
The world is eager to learn more about the Bible but it is not easy to teach the stories of the Bible using the Lectionary.
