  • “It is often said that the Church is a crutch. Of course it’s a crutch. What makes you think you don’t limp?”
  • “I love the recklessness of faith. First you leap, and then you grow wings.”
  • “Love measures our stature. The more we love the bigger we are...”
  • “...There is no smaller package in the world than a man all wrapped up in himself.”

William Sloane Coffin Sermon Archive Project

Download Sermons

Welcome to the sermons and prayers download page. When you scroll down this page you will find all of Bill's Riverside sermons organized by year. You can purchase one, four, seven sermons, or you can purchase the whole year or "album". You will also find a collection of his prayers that concluded many of his sermons. These prayers may be purchased separately but they are included in the actual sermons too.  The prayers are presented in several multi-year collections.

If you are interested in purchasing the whole collection on a DVD Data Disc please contact me by email.

Contributions to support this project can always be made through PayPal (david@davidcoffin.com)

Remember all proceeds will go directly to support the WSC scholarships at Union Theological Seminary in N.Y.C. and Yale Divinity School.

The scripture reading for each sermon can be found below in PDF format.
