My First Sermon

I preached my first “official” sermon at The Well this past Sunday. The title of the sermon is, “The Glorification of God in Jesus Christ,” and was on John 13:18-38 as part of our church’s series through the Gospel of John. You can listen to the sermon here, or peruse the archive of past sermons. The entire podcast is 34:30, including the Apostles’ Creed and the Scripture reading. My sermon is exactly 30 minutes; I start speaking at the 4:30 mark, on the dot.

I welcome any feedback. I look forward to presenting the Word of the Lord to such a loving, caring congregation in the future. It’s a joy to serve God in this way.

Good to hear of churches with more than a 5-10 min sermonette. Is 30 min usual?

Chris, I'd much rather hear my sermon in your eminently enjoyable accent!

Byron, I would say that I come from an ecclesial context in which 30 minute sermons are typical. That said, I also very much appreciate the shorter homilies of the liturgical tradition. I hope to keep future sermons in the 20-minute ballpark. Blame my prolixity!

Excellent job David. I was there when the Lord showed up!

Enjoyed listening to it! Well presented and clear. Good point that when we think of Judas, we need to remember that Satan was the motive force there.

I enjoyed that, especially the 'Jesus into hell' bit. Good job, my friend.
