The Preacher’s Studio: David Schmitt

The journey from text to pulpit can be a long and winding road, filled with false starts, surprising discoveries, and hard choices along the way. On a semi-regular basis, the homiletics faculty of Concordia Seminary invites you to walk the road with the preacher in the Preacher’s Studio sermon series. Each sermon was preached during chapel services at the Seminary. The audio for the sermon is provided below. Afterward, the campus community was invited to eat lunch with the preacher, to talk about the sermon, its preparation and execution, and dialogue about the art of preaching. We welcome you to a seat at the table.

Preacher: David R. Schmitt, Gregg H. Benidt Chair in Homiletics and Literature, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. (Text: Matthew 17:1-9)

Moderator: Glenn Nielsen, professor of homiletics in the department of practical theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.
