I have a question.
For the next few months, I will be thinking about Sunday morning messages for Fall 2007 and Spring 2008. I am already thinking about a possible series (actually several of them). Typically, what I preach on Sunday mornings comes from my own reading of Scripture, prayer, living in and listening to voices within our church, my own sense for needs within our church, and gaps that I see from previous years. Most of all, I attempt to say on a Sunday morning what I genuinely believe God wants me to say.
As the year gets under way, I sometimes realize that God may be leading in another direction. At other times, I become aware of a need to address this or that which wasn’t real obvious to me six months earlier. So, I try to be very flexible, not wanting to get in the way of what God might wish to do among the Christians I am with.
Anyway — would you consider responding to one of the following questions? (I am anxious to look at some of these responses as I think about the next few months.)
1. What do you wish your preacher/pastor/minister/etc. would address on a Sunday morning in a message or a series of messages? Why?
2. What has been one of the most helpful and meaningful series that you have heard on a Sunday morning? Why was this particularly important to you?
Thanks very much for your response to one or both of these questions. This will be very helpful to me.
