Reaching the lost is an enormous task. It is not for everyone, and it takes some highly specialised skills, one of which is to motivated our own congregations which this sermon attempts to do, but from a different angle.
This sermon was delivered to Holy Trinity in Ayr, Ayrshire, Scotland on the 11th September 2016; Holy Trinity is a Scottish Episcopal Church in the Dioceses of Glasgow and Dumfries.
The readings for today are:
Jeremiah 4:11-12, 22-28 Psalm 14 1 Timothy 1:12-17 Luke 15:1-10
