What about great sermons on line? I think that's a great question. If you go on your computer and type that in and hit the enter button, you'll find one million four hundred and fifty thousand hits that you can go to. Needless the say, not all of them are the same caliber or the same value. So I would like to give you several suggestions about all these offerings that you have on the website, over a million of them. The first is, I think all of us need to seek guidance from your pastor, priest or rabbi concerning the types of material that would be best for you and efficacious for your study. Secondly, I would encourage you to take only one sermon at the time, in order to grasp a particular message of that sermon. Now I don't think that everyone has to get the same message. But I think what's important for you is what you learn as far as the meaning of the sermon is for you. Thirdly, be open to the truth meaning that you have there. Don't go there with preconceived ideas in order to solidify your position, but go to learn something different or learn something that will challenge you or learn something that will make you want to study about that particular topic. The fourth possible way to learn is to stop periodically during the sermons, stop it, paraphrase in a journal or a pad of paper, preferably a preaching journal that you can develop. And paraphrase what you just heard and then go back re-listen or reread what the sermon says to see if you're capturing what you think is the essence of what the pastor, priest or rabbi is talking about. And lastly, this is not beneficial for private devotion and for private edification. But it's also a good way in a group setting to have people read the same sermon and then give their interpretation of it. Very important here though, to remember that each person's interpretation is important and different sermons speak differently to different people. The same sermon speaks differently to different people. So to honor each one's interpretation and to encourage each other is very important. One of the places that I found very helpful in the on line was a section called The Project Gutenberg, g u t e n b e r g, Gutenberg. And that has a download of books and sermons that you can d, books of sermons. And I think it's an opportunity for you to build a little library, if you wish, on your computer. So there are E books, there are sermons and there are also some audio sermons on the websites that you will find in numerous amounts on the web.
