How to Buy a Sermon

    Each of our sermons are around 1,300 words and take about ten minutes to preach as they are written.

    We invite you to use them as a beginning to your own message on those weeks when you just need a bit of help to come up with your own weekly sermon.

    The beginning of the sermons have been provided for you, but you will need to pay for the whole sermon (which includes suggestions for a youth story at the end) before we e-mail you the entire package. We expect you can get a sermon within a couple of hours of ordering - if not right away. Hours are 9 am - 9 pm (EST)

We Buy Sermons

Do you have a sermon you would like to submit? We pay a one-time fee of $20 for each sermon ($25 if accompanied by a short suggestion for a youth story).

At "thank goodness," we know how busy you are. Below, you will find sermons on upcoming lectionary texts that may help you with your Sunday morning. Last-minute help is right here at your fingertips. Please use these sermons to jump-start your meditative process as you put them into your own words for help to spread the Good News.

For just a small fee of $5.00 you can access our sermons and meditations. Once we receive payment, we will e-mail you the complete sermon PLUS a suggested Youth story.

Matthew 22:15-22 -- "Pay Up!"

 Exodus 33:12-23  --"The Face of God"

Sunday Oct. 18 - Pentecost 20

Sermon based on Matthew 22:15-22

Pay Up!

Don’t we hate paying taxes! Oh, we understand WHY we should all pay taxes – but it doesn’t mean we have to like it. And when we do fork over our hard-earned money to the government – we want to see what it is they have done with it.

   We want to see paved roads, good health care, great schools, and a bit of money left over for the emergencies that might come along – both here in our own country and in countries far, far away.

   This past year, our taxes paid to help all those who lost their jobs or livelihoods because of Covid-19 … and as Canadians, we were generally okay with that, because there is hardly a family anywhere that isn’t adversely affected by the necessary shut down of business and schools.

   So, it appears that people have been paying taxes for at least two millenia … we get used to it.

   But today’s scripture is about more than just paying taxes. It’s about power. They are asking Jesus about who he pays his allegiance to: to Caesar, or to God. And the thing is, no matter which answer he gives, he will anger somebody! He could anger either the leaders of the land, or the people who are looking to him for saving.

   The Pharisees are trying to trap Jesus into making a mistake – one that is so large, it can’t be ignored. They are trying to trick him – but they don’t realize how well he can play their own game.
