I've probably prepared and delivered 1,500 to 2,000 different sermons in my pastoral career which spans 50 years. Here are a few of the more recent. I can condense my sermons to a shorter time or not, depending on the custom of the particular church. Most were preached for a congregation that expected a message of 35-45 minutes.
