Sermons That Work

Sermons for Advent and Christmas 2021

This page is available in Español

Sermons That Work, a ministry of The Episcopal Church’s Office of Communication, has provided free and high-quality sermons, Bible studies, and bulletin inserts since 1995. Every week, it is our pleasure to source, review, and publish these pieces; we hope they are edifying as you hear, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest these and their corresponding scriptures.

We are proud to once again present a compilation of this year’s Advent and Christmas sermons from some of the best preachers in The Episcopal Church. Whether you use this book for private devotionals and inspiration, small group study, or reading from the pulpit, we pray that you will find this holy season brightened by the Everlasting Light himself.

Waiting, by Michael Toy
Prepare the Way, by the Rev. Lucy Strandlund
Advent Joy, by the Rev. Marcea Paul
The Hope-Song, by the Rev. Phil Hooper
The Beginning, by the Rev. Bertie Pearson
