It might be nice to have a channel or forum devoted to kicking sermon ideas around. There is a user who posts in these forums - I forget who - that has, as part of his signature - the verse, in Hebrew, from Isaiah 45:22.

פְּנוּ־אֵלַ֥י וְהִוָּשְׁע֖וּ כָּל־אַפְסֵי־אָ֑רֶץ כִּ֥י אֲנִי־אֵ֖ל וְאֵ֥ין עֽוֹד׃

I was reading one of his posts one day when my eyes naturally gravitated toward the Hebrew of the verse. Very soon, I sat there rapt in appreciative attention. I was intrigued by the verse. And I am going to do a sermon on it. Not this weekend, though I have started it.

It would be nice to see how others might approach their chosen texts in crafting sermons and bible studies. In the above verse, for example, I thought of a title like "The Turn That Saves." There are a great many things and people to whom and to which people turn. But only one - in fact, only one uniquely! - can save.

At any rate, it might be nice to have a channel or forum here devoted to sermons, bible studies, etc.
