I spend quite a bit of time in the car each day. Often times it is easy to drone out the morning traffic with music or talk radio (NPR carried me through the election :)) but one of my favorite things to do is listening to sermons. Not only do I feel more awake when I have something to focus on listening to, but I've also noticed a positive change in my mood when I start the day off engaging in God's word.
I've come to find some pastors who I really enjoy and thought I'd share -
Greg Boyd - Pastor at Woodland Hills in Minnesota - I've had the blessing to hear Greg Boyd in person several times during my visits to Minnesota. Something I really enjoy about him is his use of scripture throughout his teaching and how his sermons are often more intellectual challenging.
Jeff Manion - Ada Bible Church in Ada, Michigan - I attended Ada during my undergrad years. Jeff has done some powerful sermon series over the years, including one I especially enjoyed on Paul. Something I enjoy about Jeff's teaching is that he speaks with passion and emotion.
Craig Groeschel - Life Church in Oklahoma - I was introduced to Craig Rochelle through a Bible study I did on his book Weird. He has an excellent sermon on examining a biblical perspective to worrying which I thought was excellent!
Other sermons/bible studies I've also enjoyed lately have been given by Francis Chan, Dr. S.M. Davis, and Beth Moore.
What about you? Do you have any favorite pastors you enjoy listening to on a regular basis?
