I am reading the Forty Four Sermons out loud as part of my preparation for ordination as a Methodist Minister in September 2009. I thought I would podcast them while I was at it.
I do this to counter my ADD.
And because I think Wesley was a genius.
I read them fast – but I will try to be as clear as I can, if I read slowly it would take too long.
You can find the texts of sermons here: http://gbgm-umc.org/umhistory/wesley/jwesley3.html
I get confused with the thees and thous, but persevere.
I struggle to pronounce Latin and Greek on sight, but will try my best.
Please read [sic] where I say Man, Men etc…
I get tripped up by Roman numerals
My dogs bark
My chair creaks

    You’re a genius and a good friend!

    ha ha!

    Blessings Gus, this is a helpful resource. I’ll subscribe to the RSS and listen to them as I fly and drive.

    Might I also give a plug to a book in which I wrote a chapter (on Mr Wesley’s sermon number 23 ‘Upon our Lord’s sermon on the mount – discourse 8′ (it was on wealth, poverty and justice’).

    In this book a number of Methodist scholars and pastors (among them Trevor Hudson, Mvume Dandala, Richard Heitzenrater, Brian Beck, Randy Maddox etc. etc.) took a sermon each and ‘rewrote’ it to serve the current context. The sermons were all preached at some point and then published.

    Read more about the book here:

    And on my website you can read about my excitement when it was first published here

    Blessings! Looking forward to your Ordination!!
