Having This Ministry – A Sermon

Ministry is not easy; it often comes with sharp pain and torment.

Duke Divinity School professor of preaching, Richard Lischer, reflects on the ministry experience of Paul, who understood that his life as a minister was “always being given up to death for Jesus sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested.” Ministry, Lischer says, “is like love: it never ends,” because “the very conditions of its defeat only create the possibilities for its birth.” Read the full homily, given at the Pulpit & Pew Summative Conference in 2004.
