Chuck Bugg, leadership consultant in Congregational Formation, has compiled an excellent resource for pastors, church staff, and other students of the missional aspect of church. In the overview he writes, “I need my preacher to tell me that God can make my life more fulfilling and purposeful. But, I also need my preacher to call me out of myself and into the world God loves.”
Fellowship pastors, educators, field personnel, chaplains, and students have made contributions. These are sermons that have actually been preached. These are not just random thoughts, but practical applications of the missional conversation shared with particular congregations.
Pick up the book, hear the sermon even as you read it. Then go and do likewise! In the words of St. Francis, “Preach the Gospel, use words if necessary!”
Preaching for the Missional Journey complied by Charles Bugg is available now from the CBF Store.
