Sermons? from Fred Hiltz

Here are two "sermons" given recently by Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada. I will not reproduce them but you can access them both below.

Here, just out, he preaches on the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Earlier in the month he gave his New Years Message here.

It stikes me that these are nothing more than, "...and then we..." recitations, not sermons at all. They are lists. A sermon IMHO is where Christ is preached, or the Word of God presented and expounded upon.

Another accomplishment he might add to his list? The real God and Jesus have been asked to leave many ACC churches -- they seem to be making people uncomfortable.

Take Care

I am so tired of bishops who can only preach a political message.

What I want from a chief pastor is not to hear where the church is, but to hear where Jesus is.
