The Sermonsmith podcast is no longer in active production, but these helpful conversations are still available for you.

You may enjoy my follow up podcast — Consortio Dei — where I interview spiritual leaders about their rhythms for self care and formation.

Cyd Holsclaw

IMG_2745Cyd Holsclaw found an hour to escape from the rigors of her bivocational life as a home schooling mother to talk with us about preaching at Life on the Vine Christian Community in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Cyd talks about her own rhythms for sermon preparation, the particular structure for sermons they use at Life on the Vine, and her journey into discovering her calling to preach.
