If you are like many parish pastors, you find the Christmas season to be the most frustrating season of the church year -- so much to do, so much to celebrate, so much to say -- and so little time to prepare it all
That is why J. Ellsworth Kalas has prepared these twelve thoughtful sermons -- to help you present the meaningful and coherent messages you want your congregation to hear during this busiest of seasons.
Within are sermons for every Cycle C gospel text during the Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany seasons from the Common, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic lectionaries, including:
- The Signs of Summer
- The Hinge of History
- Songs of the Season
- Return to the New
- From Empty Nets to Full Lives
- Awake to Glory
Use these complete sermons as presented -- or as jumping-off points for your own meaningful messages. J. Ellsworth Kalas
has for sixteen years served as senior minister of the Church of the Saviour (United Methodist) in Cleveland, Ohio.
