Need a good current sermon illustration for this Sunday?

You’ll be sure to find something that will spice up and add to this weekend’s message in the July issue of Ministry Briefing.

Maybe a statistic like half of all Americans will have some form of mental illness in their lifetime (according to the Center for Disease Control).

Or that Americans spend about $3,000 every minute on pornography.

Or maybe something a little more light-hearted, like the mix-up over hashtags at this year’s Southern Baptist Convention in Houston. The official promoted hashtag of the event was #SBC13, but it turns out that #SBC13 was also the official hashtag of the Sports Bra Challenge in New York City.This led to awkward tweets such as: “That was incredibly uplifting!” #SBC2013 and “I can’t tell if that pastor was glaring or staring at me” #SBC2013.
