Cakes, Crumbs & Crusts: An Anthology of Sermons
by Bishop Cynthia King Bolden-Gardner, J.D.
CAKE, CRUMBS & CRUSTS: AN ANTHOLOGY OF SERMONS is exactly what it says. My grandmother was an accomplished baker. As a child I sat in wonder and amazement at her culinary delights and the joy they brought to customers, family, and friends on holidays and other special occasions. I was a child, not yet school age. I sat on a high chair in absolute fascination, literally drooling over the confectionary miracles. My grandmother "Bigma" adored me. I became her official sampler. She took miniature pastry cups and filled them with samples of whatever she was preparing. I would inform her whether they "passed inspection."
As I grew older and answered my call, I found the same relationship with the Almighty. He had all of the "sweets," all of the great and mighty things that we do not know. As I sit at the Saviour's feet, I enjoy slices of the cakes, grab a crumb or two on the run, and eat the crusts of the pies He shares in His Word, thus the title. Like the woman asking for the crumbs that fall from the table, I know that I am not worthy, nevertheless, He uses me.
So enjoy the pastry cups filled with confections-sermons for every liturgical season. They are sure to delight preachers, passionate hungry Christians, and the novice seeking a starting point for a new sermon. Be Blessed.
