What is a sermon?

From the Episcopal Church website:

Religious address in a worship service. The sermon is to “break open” the Word of God and proclaim the gospel in the context of the readings from scripture, the liturgical occasion, the congregation gathered, and the pastoral needs of the situation. The Christian story, the congregation’s story, and the preacher’s story can be the one story of God’s love that is proclaimed in the sermon. A short sermon is often called a “homily.”

At All Saints’ Father Dan records his sermons to share with those who may have missed service or who would like to get a second listen.
