Sermon Prep

I have an unusual suggestion for those of you who will either be present for or listen to the sermon I will preach at HPC on August 19, God willing. I will be preaching on the last half of Romans 7 (verses 13-25) and so it would make sense to read those verses at some point, of course. But in addition, I would suggest that over the next ten days you set aside some time to read Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. You may or may not have this sitting on a shelf somewhere, but the chances are whether you have read it or not, you know what it is about.

Or think you do. Hollywood movie posters aside, this is not the kind of horror tale that one expects. I’m learning that the things that really scare us are the things that are real. This is a story about something real.

If you would like to read it, you need not buy it. The text is in the public domain and you can download it by clicking here. It is relatively short and should not take you more than two or three hours to read. Enjoy!
