Interim Sermons

The following sermons relate to the five tasks of an interim pastor and to general systems theory. Some are found on the web(*) and some are basic texts of my own (the preaching of them always brings additions and deletions which change them).

I would be glad to receive references to other sermons to post here.
Send your suggestions.
