The banner for Homiletical Sensings is a picture of Phillips Brooks (December 13, 1835 – January 23, 1893) a noted clergyman and author, who briefly served as Bishop of Massachusetts in the Episcopal Church during the early 1890s. Persuasion through the character of the speaker corresponds with one of the most recognizable definitions of preaching in the modern era. In 1877 at the Lyman Beecher Lectures, he stated preaching is “the communication of truth through man to men,” or as it is often quoted, “preaching is truth communicated through personality.”

Homeletical Sensings are my perspectives on preaching mediated through my lived experiences. May these ramblings serve you, enrich the church, and glorify God. —Tim Sensing
