Housing the Sacred
by Glen Wiberg
Housing the Sacred reflects veteran Covenant pastor Glen Wiberg's high understanding of the sermon and liturgy, the space created by language for the sacred, where people are transformed as they encounter God.
Challenging pastors to approach the task of preaching with respect and humility, Wiberg offers insights into the creative and intellectual process of developing a sermon, including the various steps along with a sample of his own work.
Wiberg shares with the wider church what his congregants have long known: that the preaching act there should be something hidden in the moment break the sky asunder, to ascend on high in song.
