What Makes This Day Different? free pdf Schlafer looks at the preacher's task at the "high times" of the church and the secular year, those occasions on which expectations run high and emotions can be intense. He explores the temptations and pitfalls of preaching at weddings and funerals- baptisms and ordinations- civic holidays like Memorial Day and Thanksgiving- and the high holy days of Christmas and Easter. He also discusses preaching at times of tension and conflict in the church, the responsibilities of a guest preacher, and how to handle preaching missions and retreats.
