Unbeknownst to me, some people find the way in which I write my sermons annoying. If you have been reading my blog for the past two years you may have noticed a shift. Two years ago, before I was a ‘woke,’ two-time seminary graduate, I did not give a second thought to writing “God” on my sermon manuscript. The manuscript is the document I take with me to the pulpit on Sunday mornings. By the time I finish my preaching duties on any given Sunday the manuscript is full of notes, questions, and (some times MASSIVE) edits. I take the manuscript back to my office, update the document on my laptop, and then discard the manuscript. That is my routine.
In this episode of (Her)Men*You*Tics we (attempt) to unpack the word “YHWH” and why the Tetragrammaton is something you should care about as a person of faith.
My new practice in sermon preparation is to replace the ‘o’ in God with a ‘-.’ I’ll tell you why I do this in the episode and we will explore why or why not this is a necessary practice.
