Rev. Dr. Karoline Lewis is a pastor and professor of Biblical Preaching at Luther Seminary. In this interview we talk about the purpose of preaching as a performative act in which the word is embodied. The goal of preaching is to join Mary Magdalene in John 20 and say, “I have seen Jesus.”
Have you ever felt like a lost cause, or know someone or something that seems like a lost cause? This sermon explores Mark 4:35-5:20 and how Jesus rescues a man who was the lost cause of his town. The curious part of the story is to see how the townspeople react to it.
Are we willing to do whatever it takes, and no matter what it costs, to include everyone in the Good News?
A sermon on Mark 1:1-20. What did Jesus mean when he said, “Repent and believe the Good News?”
Change is hard. Even when we know it is coming, change is a disruptive force that brings stress and anxiety. This sermon uses Mark 2:1-22 and Jesus’ comments about New Wine and Fresh Wineskins to explore how to deal with change in life.
