What I'm reading...

Barbara Brown Taylor has penned my favorite definition of what it means to give a sermon in her book, THE PREACHING LIFE:

"A sermon, on the other hand, is an act of creation with real risk in it, as one foolhardy human being presumes to address both God and humankind, speaking to each on the other's behalf and praying to get out of the pulpit alive."
