W 207 How to Engage with Scripture - With or Without a Preacher
Everyone who comes to church needs to be helped to think about Scripture as part of the journey of worship, and to be challenged about the implications for daily life. That is what the sermon is for. But can you have a sermon if there is nobody authorized to preach? And are there better ways of presenting a sermon than a monologue?
This booklet looks at some of the challenging things you can do to help people engage with Scripture during a service. It is a booklet for dipping into, and finding what works for you and for your church.
