Sermonizing for January ’08

The cold that’s going around finally caught up with me yesterday, so I spent most of the day working at home.  At least it gave me a chance to catch up with some planning.

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately working on the preaching schedule for 2008.  As it stands now, the first five weeks of the year will be a series on God’s vision for CrossWay.  When I was at the church for a little while yesterday morning, I was talking with Grace and she was telling me about a book that some of the women at our church are studying in their small group.  She got to talking about the question: What is the Promised Land for us today?

Though I’d been studying and outlining the January series, I didn’t have a tight overarching theme to tie it all together.  But I think the Promised Land–and specifically the question that Grace raised about it–would fit nicely.  I spent most of the day arranging the pieces and putting them together, and I think it’ll work.  It’s coming along so well that I could probably preach most of the messages right now!

While being sick is no fun, it’s nice to be forced to take some down time and work on planning out the weeks ahead.

  1. I hope you feel better.

    Promise Land does sound like a really good topic to wrap around, particularly when vision casting.

  2. Thanks bro.

    Yeah, I’m looking forward to this series. Should be challenging but motivating!
