  1. I experienced a large number of extremely bad sermons in the Diocese of Texas. I am really not difficult to please on this point, but there were times when I just wanted to bang my head on the pew in front of me and go unconscious.

    You are right, Mr. C. Something should be done.

  2. Yes to seven out of eight, all from the same priest. Oh dear, oh dear. The problem with tenure is that the poor old congregation is stuck with this 52 times a year multiplied by the number of years until the incumbent decides to move on or shuffle off this mortal coil. Of course we could resort to rotten tomatoes, but one never seems to have a rotten one when one needs one, does one? :)

  3. We have quite a few priests in our congregation as we are near the California Divinity School of the Pacific out here in Berkeley, and have heard more than one faculty member, some of which are excellent preachers give our ears a treat. Just this Sunday was a fine example. However, our sound system was not working because most of the power was out, so I had to listen extra hard, and still didn’t get it all. I will be glad to read the sermon when it is put on line. Usually we have a celebrant and a preacher. It gives nice variety. It seems it has been a long time since we experienced bad theology.

  4. Oh yes, we had a rector who gave boring sermons which did not make a whole lot of sense, but he spoke in a hoarse whisper, so we could not hear a good bit of what he said. Was it better to hear or not to hear? That is the question.
