Preaching Generosity

Preaching about generosity is not preaching about money but about generosity in every sense.

The Diocese of Rochester have produced a fantastic resource, edited by Dr Jenny Corcoran (tutor or Lay Education, Practical Theology, and Old Testament at St Augustine’s College of Theology.  Contributors are both lay and ordained and draw inspiration from scripture and literature.

It is a lectionary based resource; each week a short sermon idea is drawn from one of that week’s Common Worship lectionary readings giving those preaching, lay or ordained, the tools to be comfortable and confident in preaching about generosity.

The resources originally started from Trinity Sunday last year and carry on throughout Lent to Easter Sunday with more to be added during the year. You can find this great resource here.

The Diocese of Rochester have produced a weekly newsletter with inspiring ideas: sign up here

We have also produced some helpful 200 word sermon starters suitable for anytime of the year which you can find on the Generosity and Giving facebook page
