Go and Make Disciples: Preaching the Great Commandment

Whether or how much Christians care about the people and places in their geographical community often depends on the sermons they hear, writes Joan Huyser-Honig in an essay prepared for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, an organization committed to worship renewal. To set the context, pastors often orient sermons around the vital link between Scripture and current events and highlight community-betterment work already being accomplished by congregants. One key is to realize and preach that God does not separate out the sacred and the secular, but yearns to imbue the secular with holiness. The article also includes links, additional resources and discussion prompts to start a conversation or begin thinking about preaching so your community sees itself as a vital part of God's plan
