•  2009 Inaugural Prayer Service sermon by the Rev. Dr. Sharon Watkins  •

As a spiritual practice of wellness, listen to this sermon as if Dr. Watkins were preaching to you instead of the President of the United States. During the sermon, whenever she refers to “the President” or “Mr. President,” in your own mind hear her saying, instead, “Pastor” or using your own name.

Whenever she speaks of “America” or “the nation,” imagine she is speaking of the congregation or other institution in which you serve; including the general celebrations, responsibilities, challenges, stress, and temptations found in ministry.

What new insight about your call in ministry do you hear?
