Homily on John 14:18-31

OK.  Below are three videos.

  1. Reading of the scripture
  2. Homily
  3. Prayer

This is a project for a class in which we are focusing on the specialized presentation of homilies.  A homily is not a sermon.  It is to be no longer than 5 minutes (ish) and should connect from one thing (reading scripture) to a community action (prayer here, it could be Eucharist at another place).  Additionally, I am not allowed to write anything down except a words on a 3x5 card.  So this is generally off of the top of my head except for when I use the card to get me back on track.  All the ideas expressed in the homily are my own and I think they are true.  🙂

Pretend that I look fabulous in the video!  Laptop videos leave something to be desired and my hair is pulled back tight and I'm against a dark door so I look like I have no hair!  *rolls eyes at self*  Oh well.  You'll deal with it, I suppose!

And continued prayers for my son and the family.





  • You have totally heartfelt prayers for your son and your family! Terri, your use of the world “homily” reminds me of all those decades of adult life as a very active Episcoplalian. No sermons; just homilies–which I really think allowed all that other wonderful time in the worship hour for full worshipping participation by the communicants. I like that concept; yes, I do!
