So . . . I Just Wrote
MetadataShow full item record
This project began as an assignment for the completion and requirement for my undergraduate degree from Kalamazoo College. The assignment was to simply write and compose a collection of sermons. As with most long projects that I have done over my academic career, I decided to start from the very beginning and incorporate what was most familiar to me. As a result, I began to study and rework the sermon that began my preaching ministry; "When it Rains, it Pours." Being as though this sermon falls in the middle of Elijah's life, I wanted to go back and study Elijah's introduction and departure from scripture. As I read about Elijah, I not only saw a revered prophet, but I saw us, you and I. I saw scriptures and lessons that would speak to the minds and hearts of God's children in 2004 and beyond. As I continued to read there was a small still voice that told me, "Just write." The more I read, the louder the voice rang in my spirit. So ... I just wrote.
