In 2002, I preached a sermon called Sacred Parenting. I’m pretty sure I got the idea for the name from a book called Sacred Marriage, which asks the great question, “What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy?”
A couple of years later (2004), Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage released a book called Sacred Parenting – the same title as my sermon. He must have Googled the title, because I got a letter from him last week, along with copies of two of his books:
Kind of cool to hear from an author you’ve enjoyed, and even cooler to receive free books. Any authors out there, I would be glad to name a sermon after your book if you send me a free copy (of course there are exceptions). Seriously, though – thanks, Gary!
