In Others: Sermons We Should Be Preaching to Ourselves, a series of messages based on the Lectionary, Cycle A, written from the gospel texts, by Dr. Steve Molin, the reader will find illustrations that help to explain God’s message in new and interesting ways. Finding the stories and word pictures that more easily tie into the lectionary readings for each Sunday will help the person in the pulpit make his or her sermon more compelling to the people in the pews.
Steve Molin grew up in St. Paul Minnesota. He earned a MA in youth ministry from Luther Seminary, and then spent eight years serving in the international youth organization, Young Life. He returned to Luther and received an M.Div, and was ordained as pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Steve served congregations in South Dakota and Minnesota, and recently retired after 43 years of ministry. He is the author of several books and devotionals, and was featured in the short film, “If there were no Lutherans would there still be Green Jell-O?” He and his wife, Marsha, are parents to two children, Kyle and Kindra, and they are grandparents to five precious little ones; Gordie, Sonja, Rory, Felix, and Crosby. The Molins reside in Woodbury, Minnesota.
