Opening the Sermon (July 2007)

Opening the Sermon (July 2007)


This first edition of “In the Company of Preachers” explores the importance of opening a sermon well. These opening moments of a sermon are a critical time of first impressions: you have the opportunity to gain a hearing from your listeners, engage their imaginations, and enlist them as active participants in the sermon.

Join Luther Seminary homiletics professors David Lose and Carol Miles as they explore how opening the sermon is distinct from simply introducing the sermon.
