Item description for Uplifting Christ Through Autumn: Sermons for the Fall Season by Michael D. Wuchter...

Overview
Uplifting Christ Through Autumn gathers together 12 imaginative sermons from a remarkably gifted parish pastor and campus minister, covering a variety of important occasions, such as: * World Communion Day * Stewardship Sunday * Homecoming/Fall Festival * Reformation Sunday * All Saints Day * Holy Cross Day * Thanksgiving However, the ecumenically oriented expressions of Christian faith, hope, and love in these messages make them relevant for any time of the year. Plus, Wuchter's keen eye for the telling detail, exemplified by his observation that "the refrigerator is the household religious shrine that reveals the ethical heartbeat and spiritual faith of a family," means they're readable and appealing for everyone.

Publishers Description
For Michael Wuchter, the gospel is in the details. From the story of the pilgrims who over-invited to that first Thanksgiving Day to the sugar content in grapes at the harvest, Wuchter probes the parables and sayings of Jesus to find every possible piece of good news in them. A wordsmith for the Word made Flesh, Michael has left us a treasure of thoughtful and insightful sermons that read as well as they preach.John D.

These sermons seem to sing from resurrection life beyond death, and focus our eyes, ears, and hearts on the living, breathing, poetic, and art-filled Gospel. Read. See. Hear. Imagine. These sermons will allow you to touch the holy.Canon Howard AndersonPresident and WardenCathedral College of Washington National CathedralMichael Wuchter's sermons are a mending together of Word and world, allowing divine love to flow into the unpredictability of real life. I highly recommend this book for pastors, parishioners, and students alike.Edwin EhlersFormer PresidentNew Jersey Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in AmericaAccenting themes such as sainthood, death, angels, reformation, thanksgiving, and unity, These sermons are marked by sound biblical-historical scholarship and are linked to the challenges of our present-day life. The Word is powerfully proclaimed in every sermon.Daniel F. MartensenEcumenical Research Fellow, Washington (D.C.) Theological ConsortiumFormer Director, Dept. of Ecumenical Affairs, ELCAMichael D.

Reviews - What do customers think about Uplifting Christ Through Autumn: Sermons for the Fall Season?

Handsome Volume Shares Pastor's Expressions of Faith  Dec 25, 2006
Shirley Dyer Wuchter's compilation of her husband's best work shares the themes of his ministry with the world. This elegant book is a welcome addition to any library of 20th century sermons.
 
Finding the Risen Christ  Nov 30, 2006
This collection of the Rev. Michael Wuchter's sermons is built on the themes of abundance, stewardship, reformation, and sainthood. Michael's thoughtful, considered language and striking images bring the messages of the church year into relevance and meaning for our everyday lives. As I read the sermons, I can picture the worship service, the congregation's attention, and the power of Michael's message clarifying and focussing the words and actions of the Christ of the gospel into terms that speak directly to each of us.
 
Following the Living Christ  Oct 29, 2006
This collection of sermons by Michael D. Wuchter offers readers twelve jewels from which the gospel message shines. Wuchter's prose is clear and strong, and his images are as finely crafted as poetry. In "The Scandal of the Cross," he writes: "An instrument of execution, the cross becomes now the symbol of the greatest show of love at the greatest time of hate." Whether Wuchter considers the cross, the desire for communion, or the sainthood of all believers, he illuminates the joys and challenges of following the living Christ.
 
Inspiring collection of writings  Oct 12, 2006
This fine collection of sermons by a Lutheran pastor and former chaplain of Wittenberg College is an inspiring read. The pieces are full of poetry, insight, and faith.
