As the title suggests the aim of these sermon prompts is to 'cause somebody to act: to make someone decide what to do: to cause something to happen.'
This material is suitable for developing into sermons or subjects for Bible study. There will be a variety of subject matter available in the future and will show a range of subjects. Some will be controversial like the paper on Gethsemane and the writer welcomes comment on such subjects.
The series on the Seven Churches of the Revelation contains the detailed history of each city together with several photographs of the ruins and other apsects of its past.
The list will be added to over the coming months and I trust the reader will be blessed and instructed and as Scripture encourages us to “"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (NKJV) 2 Tim 2:15 As the KJV puts it, "Study to show yourselves approved unto God..."
Preachers should feel free to use this material for preaching and also if publishing in a local weekly Church news bulletin. If it is desired to publish an article more extensively then sending me an e-mail first explaining how it is to be used would be courteous.
The first two subjects are not sermon material but relate to weddings held in Wren's Cathedral. In the first publication we offer part four of the book, “The Wedding Ceremony in Wren’s Cathedral” here on this web site. It lays out a wide choice of words couples are offered, so that when the marriage takes place, the service is unique to them. The words were gathered from many parts of the world as well as from different Christian denominations. Ministers should feel free to use them as they wish. The second publication, "Choice of Hymns, readings, poems and music for weddings in Wren's Cathedral," offers suggested hymns and songs, readings and poems and a variety of organ music. However, this list is not inclusive.
