Our Preachers:

  • The simplest way to use these sermons in worship is to download them to a laptop, connect the laptop to a projector, and project the sermons onto a screen.
  • In a smaller space, you can download the sermons to a laptop and use an HDMI cable to connect the laptop to a large, flat screen TV (or burn a DVD).
  • With a group of four or five you can enjoy refreshments and Bible study at a kitchen table, and then watch the sermon on a laptop.
  • For individual viewing: start by reading the text (always!), and then stream the sermons to a laptop, a tablet, or a smart phone.

The Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

Joanna Adams


Joanna Adams, retired pastor in the Presbyterian Church and co-founder of Higher Ground, preaches a sermon from 2 Kings 5:1-14 called "The Ego and the Miracle."  Rev. Adams has preached at the Washington National Cathedral, the Memorial Church of Harvard University, the Festival of Homiletics, and here, at A Sermon for Every Sunday!

How It Works:

As a little girl, Joanna used to preach to her dolls.  Listen to how this groundbreaking Presby-terian got her start.

A Sermon for Every Sunday was founded in 2014 by Jim Somerville, Pastor of Richmond's First Baptist Church, and David Powers, President of Belltower Pictures, as a way to help churches that didn't have, or couldn't afford, a regular preacher.  They recorded sermons in high-definition video that could be projected during worship, and then made those sermons available to rent ($4.99) or buy ($9.99) in an effort to recover production costs.  For more than a year, that was the business model. 

About Us:

Lectionary-based video sermons for use in worship, Bible study, small groups,

Sunday school classes, or for individual use.  All you do is push the button.   

Amy Butler is the Senior Minister of the Riverside Church in New York City and a popular preacher, speaker, and writer. Her new book will be published later this year by Random House.

Michael Curry is the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church (USA), the author of Crazy Christians, and one of the most sought-after preachers in America.

Brian McLaren is a speaker, an activist, and bestseilling author of More Ready than you Realize, A Generous Orthodoxy, and, most recently, We Make the Road by Walking.

This Week's Sermon:

But then a generous gift from an anonymous donor made it possible to offer the sermons free of charge, at least for the foreseeable future.  Now they are being used by small churches, house churches, Bible studies, small groups, Sunday school classes, and for individual viewing on laptops, tablets, and smartphones.  Click the buttons above to get a link to the weekly sermon delivered to your inbox, or--if you find this resource valuable--to make a donation.  We'd like to keep the sermons coming.

Will Willimon is a former bishop in the United Methodist Church, a powerful preacher, and a prolific author. His most recent book is: How Odd of God: Chosen for the Curious Vocation of Preaching.
