2022-2023 Chapel Sermons


Chapel sermons delivered at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary during the 2023-2023 academic year.

This year's chapel theme is "Breaking Open." Breaking Open is our community’s active and present work. In the educational space of the seminary, we break open Biblical texts, the history and traditions of the church, and language about God to expand and deepen our calls to ministry. Our space in Austin, our state, the country, and the world call us to break open our community to expand the love of God to all our neighbors. We gather to worship One whose life and word are broken open for us in love.
