[The Presence of God. Sermons]
In worship Christians celebrate the origins of their faith. This constitutes also the meaning of sermon: it reflects the present of faith in the light of the experience of the origins. This is the experience of the truth of the Gospel: The present life of the people is God's presence for the people, his community creating and reconciling care for them on which they can and should rely unconditionally. The professionalism of the sermon is its exemplary character. As expression of the self-reflection of the preacher on the origins of his faith it moves the listeners towards their own self-reflection on the origins of their faith. Through it they are not only connected with each other and the preacher but also with God, origin and goal of all human life.
