Sermons – by reference

From Verbum Help:

Sermons Section

This section lists sermons that have been labeled with the guide’s key reference or topic.

Note: sermons within published sermon collections are most likely to have been labeled, and not every potential sermon has (yet) been labeled.

User-added Sermon labels are also searched by this section. For more about the Sermon label scheme, see Searchable Labels.[1]

 

Prerequisite reading: none

Resources included:

The criterion for inclusion is the presence of a {Label Sermon} label. This includes, in my library, most type:sermon, many “collected works of” and patristic resources, . . .

A search for {Label Sermon} against all resources should give you a complete list of sermon-labeled resources in your library. In my case this is 634 resources of which 352 are type:sermon. This amounts to about 63% percent of the sermon resources being tagged.

P18-1 Search Label

Section heading bar

Think standard section heading bar – no special features.

The contents are unremarkable with the exception of the inclusion of Sermon Documents i.e. the user’s sermon at the top of the list.

P18-3 Contents

Contents:

  • Sermon author with sermon count

Search

A search to duplicate the results of this guide section is easily built in the form of {Label Sermon WHERE References ~ <Mk 1:9–11>}. What one is lacking is the ability to sort them into homilist sequence although resource, count, and rank options are available.

P18-6 Sermon Search

Supplemental materials

While there is no specific support for analyzing other’s homilies, the following tools are worth exploring for the creation of your own homilies:

  • Guide: Sermon Starter – Bible reference form
  • Guide: Sermon Starter – Preaching theme form
  • Workflow: Expository Sermon Preparation
  • Workflow: Ralph West’s Weaving the Textual Web (adapted from “Weaving the Textual Web” by Ralph West from the book Power in the Pulpit: How America’s Most Effective Black Preachers Prepare Their Sermons, edited by Cleophus J. LaRue (Westminster John Knox, 2002))
  • Workflow: Topical Sermon Preparation
  • Tool: Homily Builder
  • Tool: Homily Manager

Note that the guides and workflows are all single passage in their orientation and, therefore, not meeting the needs of the Catholic (or nearly any liturgical) homilist.
