PREACHING IN TIMES OF CRISIS

Robert Beamish

Guidance on sermons in challenging or tragic times

There are moments in life, such as the Manchester Arena bombing of 2017, when everything changes and the darkness breaks in. Facts and emotions flood over us from the media in raw confusion. So how should a worshipping community react and how might the preacher respond to the crisis and minister effectively? Robert Beamish’s helpful guide suggests owning the pain, weeping and being silent; utilising biblical lament and making sermons into therapeutic spaces where people move from pain to promise, conscious of God’s presence in their midst. This is a great little book for speakers and service leaders in our current, challenging times.
