Texts for Daily Chapel

As noted in a previous discussion, we begin each day at our school with worship. Preaching a 5-minute chapel sermon every day might seem a bit daunting, but there are plenty of themes to consider when drawing from limitless well of God's living Word.

Here are some themes I used:

  • The Old Testament reading from Sunday's Divine Service
  • The Epistle reading from Sunday's Divine Service
  • The Gradual
  • The Introit
  • The parts of the liturgy
  • The morning and evening daily psalms appointed in Lutheran hymnals
  • Find a text which illumines the Collect of the Day
  • seriatum from books like Numbers or the Acts of the Apostles
  • the Bible verse associated with the hymn of the week
  • Gospel readings which are not included in the lectionary
  • elaborations on Luther texts in such devotionals as Day By Day We Magnify TheeLuther's Family Devotions, or Luther for the Busy Man
Gnetlemen vis-a-vis Saints
Phyllis Schlafly On Education
