Everyone knows that we have online and written services every month. This is not news, especially for members of the clergy, yet every month we have to beg for people to volunteer to do these sermons. It is really shameful that no one gives due importance to this work and we have to be hard pressed for greater participation, especially from the oldest and most qualified members.

If you share a calendar of the current remaining slots, and the desired topic for the open sermons, I would be happy to volunteer for one.

Remember the doctrine; embody the code.
Live the creed; embrace the 16 teachings.
Honor your vows.

People's lives are busy, so rather than waiting for people to remember in their busy lives that sermons are needed, or guilt-tripping the general population, can we instead let them know what their responsibilities and expectations are?

Maybe have a list of people willing to write sermons regularly and have them on a rotating schedule? That will ensure that we always have sermons on deck, and people can switch days with others, add new regulars to the list, or squeeze in a one-off guest writer as needed.

I'm happy to add my name to a rotating schedule for sermon writing :)

Be that as it may , there is still no visible calender , nor a forum topic where people can apply. The lack of interest of the clergy members is hardly of my concern , but i do share it with you , i notice that non clergy members are very well represented in the Sermon section. I do not wish to intrude in clergy matters , but maybe its a good idea to motivate clergy students to write and perform sermons at a regular bases ? If i overstep my boundaries and such is already the case i apologize..

Furtermore , with the contstant in and out flux of members the matter of what we all "know" is debatable

Thanks everyone. Ive reported the problem. I cant publish sermons. But I have two in the Wings. Hopefully this gets sorted. In the mean time just we have slots on Wednesdays and Saturdays. One can always send a sermon and I will find a slot for it. What to do in the mean time. Maybe a thread?

A thread sounds like an excellent short time solution indeed :)

This still doesn't solve the issue of the ongoing shortage of sermons, though.

I know. That isn't a new issue, but we sort of have to work with what we have. We've tried several different solutions and it's really unfortunate that this still ends up being a problem despite our effort.

I like your suggestion though Leah. I think that would be helpful
