About Serminutes


What’s a “Serminute?”

When I first started preaching I was tasked with the challenge of preaching not sermons, but “sermonettes.” I’m not certain who coined this word, but my understanding of it means a “bite-sized” sermon that doesn’t take a lot of time getting your point across. I’m definitely not a man of few words. Words are my paint and paper my palette. So, trying to narrow my words yet get something meaningful across has proven to be quite an undertaking. The world we’re living in is face-paced and if you can’t get your fast-food meal in under a minute, you’re tapping your foot. I am aware of that so I’ve devised a plan for you to get a small devotion with a big meaning!

The idea isn’t new and has been embraced by several of my Facebook Friends as “sermonettes.” I’ve allowed myself a maximum of a minute or two for you to read these and dubbed my little snippets “ser-minutes” as a play on the word sermonette or a “sermon in a minute.” It takes me a great deal of time some days to write these, but it will only take you about a minute to read and hopefully be blessed and encouraged.

Usage and Credit

I do my absolute best to give credit for thoughts that were not originally mine, and when possible link to the original content. Feel free to use these for inspiration, encouragement, sermon or Bible study ideas.

If they bless you and have proven valuable all I ask is the following…

I sincerely thank you for reading and sharing!
