preachers, I use a variety of styles. From 2005 to 2017, most of my sermons were delivered without a manuscript. This development followed a visit to our

Recently, I am shifting again, tho' I haven't settled. Since 2009 we have digitally recorded the audio into .mp3 files, so that
these sermons can be heard online. There are also complete
written worship services online (since 2000, more detailed in later years) to go with these sermons.
As there are over twenty years worth of sermon manuscripts
and/or recordings in these pages, you
might find a message on a particular text or lectionary
date in the indexes below. We still send our prayer list (the shared joys

I generally follow the Revised Common Lectionary (a 3-year cycle of scriptures), but will often choose to go in different directions. Below are my sermons, listed beginning with the most recent. - PLH (click here to contact me)
All my sermons are indexed according to:
a) Scripture Text, b) Lectionary Cycle, & c) Year Preached
There is also a site search tool.
See also the index of sermons preached by others when I am away.
For various versions of scripture,
see Online Translations of the Bible.
Though not updated in several years, here's my Bibliography.

Many years ago, we installed a Hearing Induction Loop, a simple and inexpensive means of helping those with a hearing disability (and a hearing aid equipped with a telephone switch) to better participate in worship.
