That sounds like the most boring club ever. Well, yeah it kind of does - but here's the idea behind it. You all are smarter than me, but we are smarter than just you. Two heads are better than one and all that. The point of the sermon club is to get people's input together to come up with some ideas that are better than any idea that just one of us would have. I'll throw out a topic and give all of you (and anyone else you invite) the opportunity to add to it, tweak it, reinforce it, change it, build it, borrow it or just plain steal it. Of course, clubs have rules (because it's a cliche'):
1. Anyone can comment at Sermon Club.
2. If someone has a terrible idea, let it go and move on.
3. No posting stories or quotes without permission or sources.
4. No comments are too long or too short.
5. Don't expect all (or sometimes any) comments to be included in sermons, but don't be surprised when they are.
6. If its your first time at Sermon Club, you have to comment
I'm a child of God, following the crazy path that's been laid out for me: engineer, student, coach, preacher, specialist, shepherd, husband, friend - transplanted from the NEPA life I know to the midwest, anxiously awaiting whatever comes next and fighting until that day arrives.
