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.

Joe Thorn

joe_thornJoe 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.
