Today’s word of the day is homiletic. It’s spelled H-O-M-I-E-T-I-C. Homiletic is an adjective that means related to preaching. Our word of the day’s journey begins with the Ancient Greek word homilos (HO me los) which meant crowd or assembly. This word later morphed into homily, ‘a short sermon.’ Anything related to a homily may be called homiletic. Sandy’s pep talk at the meeting got everybody fired up. Not only did she motivate us, but her homiletic language helped us understand the moral guidelines we needed to follow.
