Joe Thorn takes a break from final edits to a tardy book manuscript to describe how he seeks to balance law and gospel in each sermon, how they make it a priority to develop new preachers in their young church, and how the most impressive beard in Sermonsmith history is a reminder of a significant season of growth.
