Thanks for checking out “Sermon Central,” sermons preached from the pulpit of Central Congregational Church. Remember that a sermon is an oral event. Sermons are written to be heard, not read. So as you read please try to hear the voice of the particular preacher sharing the message. That should help the words come off the page and convey spiritual truth to your heart and mind. Of course many of the sermons are now available as a podcast, so you can actually hear the voice of the preacher. Most of all, may you hear God’s “still, small voice” speaking to you.

God bless you on your sacred journey!
