"The sermon is a brief time near the middle of our Episcopal liturgy when the priest or deacon or lay preacher opens and examines scripture in the context of a community... How do this week’s lectionary passages speak to us? What are they calling us, specifically, to do?"

"American theologian Ellen Davis, who works back in North Carolina at Duke Divinity School, put another important aspect of a sermon in focus when she famously wrote, "The preacher is called to love the scriptures in public." ... I hope that my love of scripture will come through in my sermons as your rector."
