New Sermon Series – New Blog Adventure

Help! Those of you who are regular Interactive Sermon viewers: would you be willing to help me launch a new feature of this page?

Beginning this weekend (and with a new series of studies thru the entire book of 1 Corinthians), I will post my sermon notes and an mp3 of the message here on the blog. I will be inviting people to read back thru the notes, or to revisit the audio, and to post comments, questions, agree, disagree or otherwise share their experience with the study. My hope is to provide a forum that will help enhance all of our apprehension and application of the Word.

In addition to the dialogue over the sermon text, because I will tackle a chapter a week over sixteen weeks, and because I can’t preach on an entire chapter each Sunday morning, I will endeavor to include postings thru the week that comment on the remainder of the chapter – those parts not covered in the sermon. My hope here is that together, thru the blog, we will accomplish a pretty thorough study of 1 Corinthians.

Lastly, I’m hoping to add a couple of pieces each week on the blog to add some flavor – looking into the little observations, rabbit trails or controversies each passage offers up – in a way that I cannot tackle on a Sunday morning.

You ask, “How can I help?” – Thanks for asking!

You can (1) plan to help me ‘seed’ the conversation in the early days of this new adventure. Because you are a somewhat regular visitor, I could really use your help in showing newcomers to the blog scene how it can be done. (2) Please tell others about this new feature on the blog. I imagine that even folks who don’t come to CCA would benefit from reading through the conversation on these topics. And, for anyone who is an unbeliever, there cannot be a safer place to look in on spirituality than thru a virtual window. (3) Converse with people about our study thru 1 Corinthians. Help me foster conversation as we move thru this study. And (4) email me suggestions as we get started. What would you like to see? What would be helpful? How can it be better? I really value your input.

Can I count on you to help?

  • This sounds like a great idea...An Interactive Sermon indeed! A Blog Study Group of sorts? I will definitely tell a few of my friends to start checking in. They might just be looking for a safe place to visit!
