The issue for us is that many in our church believe the sermon is expendable; it’s just not that important. There are exceptions, like the Advent, that believe that the proclamation of the word is central to our gatherings (we are a morning prayer parish), but they are few and far between.
Less an acquiescence to the incoming commander in chief, it is an indicator that we do not think that preaching is all that important. If our churches are not centers of gospel proclamation, woe be unto us.
