Forbes preaching Quest
Rev. James Forbes delivers a sermon at Quest Church in Seattle, WA, October 16, 2013. (Robin Stephenson).

One child without food brings anguish to the spirit of our Great God.

Lord, I want to feel what you feel in conditions of hunger and want. And then I want to feel your joy when we have made it possible for others to feel abundance.

— Rev. James Forbes, in a sermon on Luke Chapter 15 delivered at Quest Church in Seattle, Wash., October 16, 2013.

Congregations around the country are hearing God’s message that we are all called to end hunger, and pastors are learning how to more effectively preach about this charge. Rev. Dr. James Forbes Jr., whom Newsweek magazine recognized as one of the 12 “most effective preachers,” is preaching in churches and leading homiletics workshops for those who speak from the pulpit. Rev. Forbes is senior minister emeritus of the Riverside Church and retired professor of preaching at Union Theological Seminary in New York City.
