Have you ever wondered what a sermon is? Among all it says about a sermon, Wikipedia shares the following:
A sermon is also known as a homily within some churches. The word “sermon” comes from a Middle English word which was derived from an Old French term, which in turn came from the Latin word serm (which means “discourse”). The word can mean “conversation”, which could mean that early sermons were delivered in the form of question and answer, and that only later did it come to mean a monologue. In contrast to this, are the examples from the Bible, where sermons are speeches: Moses’ sermon in Deuteronomy 1-33; Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7; Peter’s sermon after Pentecost in Acts 2:14-40.
In this section you will find some outlines and manuscripts of sermons I have preached. In most instances there will be full liturgy (hymns, prayers, etc.) of the service. Feel free to browse, borrow or use as God leads. They are listed by title. Peace!
