So why an app? you asked. We asked working
preachers if they wanted an app and they said “Yeah!” “Yeah!” Seriously, there are apps
for everything: to speak French, to train your dog, to find good wine… so why not a
preaching app? And here it is… the Working Preacher app. You can find weekly
commentaries on the Revised Common Lectionary texts; discussion questions
for each week’s RCL readings; Narrative Lectionary commentaries; a scripture
reading from NRSV; a Bible index where you can look up commentaries by chapter
and verse; a sleek new media player for Sermon Brainwave and Narrative
Lectionary podcasts; comentários en espanol; in fact an entire
Spanish-language tab that includes the Bible Index; and of course all the great
articles and videos taken directly from Working Preacher’s blog The Craft of
Preaching. Make sure you check out the menu tab for more options to give take
notes and don’t miss the settings where you can sign up for notifications about
new content for RCL preachers, narrative and spanish-language preachers. Finally
we’ve completely streamlined to the giving process so once you’ve given a
gift through the app to support Working Preacher it’s super simple to give again.
Back in 2007 when WorkingPreacher.org launched we made a promise that this
great content would be “Always open, always free.”
We hope you think it’s worth a couple bucks for this one-time download so you
can access free content in an intuitive format that’s right at your fingertips.
And as you use the app let us know what you love and what you’d change. Send an
email to cbp (at) luthersem.edu to help us fine tune
the app. We rely on you to help us keep Working Preacher … working for you!
