Item Description...
If you preach, you are looking for ways to create worship experiences that keep people on the edge of their seats, straining to hear every word. Sermon Seeds helps pastors who want to approach the job of preaching more creatively by suggesting out-of-the-box surprises that bring about deeper understanding of God's message. Creative, multifaceted sermons can happen without extensive technology, money, or staff. Sermon Seeds stirs creative juices by providing ideas that can easily be adapted for use in a variety of settings. The book contains forty creative sermon starters, each complete with the Scripture passage, message theme and elements, background information, creative avenue, and suggested ending. Themes include: Passing the Mantle, The Bread-Maker God-Holy Communion, and Grace: Breaking Through the Barriers. The DVD contains three complete sermons as featured in the book, delivered by Dottie Escobedo-Frank.

More About Dottie Escobedo-Frank

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Dottie was called to ministry when she was 8 years old. As the daughter of missionaries to Mexico, and a Lutheran pastor, she knew the life of ministry was complex. Her first response to God's call was an immediate, "No way!"Marriage (to Dr. Jim Frank), raising children (Elizabeth, Sara, Natalie, and Andrew), and Social Work (earning her MSW and CISW, with a focus on pediatric and medical social work) kept her busy for fifteen years. Then, while vacationing in Mazatlan, Mexico, Dottie experienced a "recall" event, and, this time, went straight to seminary. She earned her MDiv from Claremont School of Theology.Dottie is an elder of the Desert Southwest Annual Conference. She has served as pastor at Liberty UMC, Mission Bell UMC, Community Church of Joy (a Lutheran congregation), and is currently at CrossRoads UMC. Her work has been centered on revitalization, worship and preaching, and multicultural ministry. She is a speaker and writer, authoring "Sermon Seeds," "Advent and Christmas, the Igniting Worship Series," and "Creative Worship, A Video Workshop for Worship Leaders and Teams," published by Abingdon Press. Dottie earned D.Min. from George Fox Evangelical Seminary in April, 2012.Dottie has a passion for the church and is a voice calling for a new imagination of the ministry of Christ in the world.

Perfect Book For ANY Pastor  Feb 19, 2009
As a pastor, it seems that I read almost any book out there that promises to help me be a better speaker / presenter. I was trained in the "old school" way of sermon delivery: "All sermons need to be in manuscript from, given from the pulpit" (and put everyone to sleep.) This book opened my eyes to the idea that a sermon didn't have to be boring! I can honestly say that this book transformed my ministry. I may not have used every "sermon seed" exactly as the author presented it, nor should I have! These are seeds - something to get your mind working. Since I began using these ideas, and many of my own, my ministry has grown beyond belief. I can honestly say that this book has impacted my ministry more than any other book. I am not sure why the other reviewer didn't think his/her pastor would enjoy the book - it was designed to get our minds thinking "outside the box." The ideas are designed as seeds, something to get us started - not a book to end our creative thinking, but a book designed to kick-start it! My favorite idea from the book is taking your shoes off! (You will have to read the book to see why!) I've used it in classes and during my service. By the way, we have a traditional service, and these ideas are well accepted, and will be accepted at our new contemporary service that we are adding next month! (Have to add a service because we have out grown our current facility - thanks, in part, to this book!)

A real snore  Jun 26, 2008
I bought this book as a gift for a pastor. I was somewhat embarrassed to give it to him when I saw how boring it was. Nothing "snappy" about it to me!
