Potential Theme: 2 Samuel 5:1-5, 9-10

July 1, 2009

These are the thoughts I have so far for this week’s sermon*:

Theme (What is God doing in the text?): God is providing leadership for the beloved community.

Need (What is the human need reflected in the text?): We need God-focused leaders who love us.

Image (What is the dominant image for the sermon?): Bone and flesh (related to family/community).

Mission (To what action is the text leading us?): Recognize, appreciate and nurture the budding leaders among us.

What dominant image do you see in this text?  Can you think of some helpful stories that go along with “bone and flesh?”

*These categories are adapted from Paul Scott Wilson’s The Four Pages of the Sermon (Nashville: Abingdon, 1999).
