Feedback indicates that people enjoy Larry’s messages as succinct, thought-provoking summaries of vital spiritual and religious issues. The messages provide background information of Bible verses and practical application of biblical principles with real-life situations. Most of Reverend Hoxey’s messages address Bible passages from the Revised Common Lectionary because that is the scripture source requested by his current congregation of St. John United Church of Christ.
Reverend Hoxey’s written messages also serve as a basis for a mid-week or Sunday morning get-together known as Sermon Seminar, an adult faith study group. Sermon Seminar is a popular gathering during which people can ask questions and share comments about the previous Sunday sermon. The participants say that they feel empowered when they have a way to provide feedback to the minister about his public comments.
