to the particularity of the text, to give one's sermon both scriptural integrity and the texture and detail that effective sermons require. This approach also helps hearers see for themselves where aspects of key doctrines come from, and it enables preachers to take up the doctrine from several angles without just being repetitious. If preachers were, say, to take for several years running a different one of the lectionary texts for Trinity Sunday, and from it preach a sermon on the Trinity, preacher and congregation alike would be better informed about this foundational doctrine of the Christian faith.
