He graduated from the University of Toronto, and then completed graduate degrees in theology at Harvard Divinity School (Th. M.) and the University of St. Michael’s College, Toronto (Ph.D.).

Commentaire :


It has been noted that long before the protestant Reformation erupted in his country, Henry VIII became restless during the mass only when sermons extended well beyond their first hour. More than three hundred years later, the most recent sermon of the most famous (or infamous) of Victorian preachers, the pugnacious Baptist Charles Spurgeon, would be on sale on Monday morning in the newsstands of London. Much has changed in the media, and publishing, and in liturgical reform in the years since, much of it good, most would agree. But the sermon has taken a beating. Our attention spans have withered and our notion of the authority of the text and the authority of the preacher have been transformed. If the preaching and publishing and reading of sermons are not nearing extinction, sermons are hardly the backbone of catechesis and spiritual formation, as they once were for the Anglican Communion.
Nonetheless, this little collection is neither a plea to roll back church history nor a challenge to the centrality of the eucharist or to the prayers of the faithful in the contemporary Anglican tradition. It is a modest attempt to help all of us reflect upon the core of our tradition, the Scriptures, and upon the Creator and Redeemer who is at their centre.
These sermons were preached within three days of each other by four different preachers in the pulpit of the Church of the St. Mary Magdalene, in the season that has defined Christianity across the centuries. In 1998 it was a season in which the parish seemed to feel an accumulating sense of the presence of God in the great liturgies of our faith, and an unusual consensus about the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts through what the Book of Alternative Services has been bold to call the 'Proclamation of the Word'. If this booklet is able to summon up even a little of the reality of that Holy Week and Easter, grace will have been added onto grace, as St. Paul once said.
I would like to thank the parish for granting me a little time to edit these sermons, and Margot Poaps for converting a messy stack of manuscripts into a handsome booklet. They come from four different hands and echo four different voices, and so have been modified for reading as little as possible to preserve their uniqueness.
Deogratias, whose praises these sermons aspire to sing.
PaulH.Friesen All Saints, 1998
