I'm going to try something a little different with my evaluation of this round. Seeing that no one really followed the rules, I thought I would depart from the standard. Everyone was either late, had no passage or just gave a half hearted attempt at the sermon about RHP to RHP.
What did I learn? I learned that as a community (based on this round of sermons) RHP membership struggles with following the "rules." I was looking for some themes of RHP. Things like community, struggles, anger, perhaps diversity. These would hve been excellent themes to focus on. No one really named the community of RHP in their sermon, much less a pervasive issue that defines our community around what we might experience in the forums. It was an interesting experiment which perhaps shows how hard it is to preach to and about a specific congregation.
I think the struggle is how to hold people in the relationship when naming the truth of an issue. Perhaps how to challenge in the face of adversity. OK, I won't award any points in this round. I will look forward to Sister Mimor naming the final round.
