Rob suggests how sermons might change from “A Young Person” to a “Not As Young Person”. Here are some of his examples:
A Young Person’s Sermon >>>> A Not As Young Person’s Sermon
How to Live Without Regret >>>> How to Live With It
How to Live With Those we Love. >>>> How to Live Without Them
I Slew Goliath with the Sling and Stone. >>>> May our Warring Cease.
Becoming the Me I Want to Be. >>>> Accepting the Me I Am.
This We Believe. >>>> What if I Don’t?
Money, Sex, and Power. >>>> Love.
By Grace Alone >>>> By Grace Alone
I thought this was really interesting. It also occurred to me that, at least by Rob’s calculation, I have aged a lot (spiritually) in the last 18 months — which is not necessarily a bad thing at all.
What do you think of Rob’s hypothesis? Any other examples of “Young” vs. “Not As Young” sermons?
