Interim Sermons

The following sermons relate to the five tasks of an interim pastor and to general systems theory. These are basic texts of my own used in intentional interim settings. The preaching always brings additions and deletions which change them -- imagine them far better than they look here).

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