Below are each of the three Beecher Lectures given at Yale Divinity School this fall. I hope you’ll find these lectures helpful as you continue in the ministry into which God has called you. Thanks to those who were able to tune in!
On the outset of the Beecher Lectures, here’s a video I did as a part of the Bishop’s Institute for Ministry & Leadership in partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Florida. It’s one of ten videos in a series called “Preachers on Preaching.” Enjoy!
“The cross is what you get for walking with Jesus.” As you prepare for worship this week, I hope you’ll find this sermon helpful. Here’s a link to a few other sermons, headlined by my friend Jason Micheli.
One of Will’s most recent publications, a memoir entitled Accidental Preacher, recounts, with characteristic wit and humor, moments from his rich vocational life.
Beginning with his childhood in a segregated South, Will moves through story after story of a life spent responding to God’s constant call.
