silent sermon

March 22, 2006 | 4 Comments

This past weekend, we stole Rob Bell‘s idea and did a silent sermon. Rather than listen to a sermon, those in our worship gathering reflected on thoughts shared on the screen. I’ve involved in a few different settings now where we used this, and it has been a meaningful experience every time.

If you’d like to watch the sermon, it is available for viewing over at PathwaysBlog.

(Special thanks to Steve Carter who passed it along to Berto who passed it along to me a few years ago.)

    That was pretty neat. I can’t believe you came up with that all by yourself John.

  • I came up with nothing! As stated, I stole the idea from elsewhere and Dean made some tweaks. I’m just a middle man.

    You never cease to amaze me with your creativity.

  • It looks like this post is a couple years back but do you have the video up anywhere or the slides so I could get an idea of what you guys did? Thanks!
