As a busy pastor, you work hard at managing day-to-day demands and planning for the future. Even before Christmas arrives, you’re thinking about Easter—and how to plan and store sermons amid all the other demands can be challenging.
But in just a few clicks, Sermon Manager in Logos can help you streamline that process by queuing up an entire sermon series at once.
Sermon Manager integrates your sermon documents and templates with other sermon preparation tools in Logos, like Sermon Builder. These integrations reduce the time it takes to plan and store sermons—and frees you up for the countless other tasks you’re likely juggling.
How to add sermons to the radial calendar
Start by adding up to 100 sermons to your calendar with a few clicks:
- At the top of the sermon manager panel, click on the number 1, and select the number of sermons you want to add.
- Click Blank Sermon(s), and choose whether your new sermons will be blank documents or based on a template you’ve created.
- Click No Date and pick your date(s) from the calendar, or select Next empty week to add your sermon(s) beginning with the next week without any scheduled sermons.
- Select Next empty week, and choose the frequency and day of the week for your sermons by clicking Weekly on Sunday.
And because your preaching shouldn’t be isolated from the rest of church life, with a single click, you can view events from your Faithlife group in Sermon Manager, too.
How to add sermons based on a lectionary
If you’re preaching based on lectionary readings, Sermon Manager can handle that, too. When you’re adding new sermons to your calendar, click Blank Sermons, and expand the Lectionaries field at the bottom of the dropdown. From there, you can select one of the lectionaries in your library, and Logos will create the number of sermons you selected with the passages field pre-populated based on the lectionary readings for that day.
