Sermons

Derived from the Latin word sermo, meaning discourse, a sermon is an address on a biblical, theological, or moral subject, typically delivered by a member of the clergy in a liturgical setting. At Christ Church, a sermon given within the context of the Holy Eucharist is often referred to as a homily.
