So, here’s the deal…February 1, 2007
I’m moving house today, which doesn’t lend itself to a long and thoughtful post. But I do want to ask for your help in two ways.
1) Under Construction
Over recent Wednesday’s I’ve posted articles on how John Stott and Peter Grainger prepare sermons. I’ve also benefited greatly from Steve Weaver’s posts “How I Prepare an Expository Sermon.”
So here’s my thought. Preachers, I’d love to hear how YOU prepare sermons. If you would be willing to summarise your prep steps onto no more than an A4 sheet, I’ll try to post as many as come my way on our Wednesday slot (send to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org). This will not only benefit other pastors but might help you clarify what steps you are currently taking. If you’ve like to get an idea about how you might set out your entry, check out John Stott’s version.
2) Workman Watch
One or two of you have asked if I would be willing to listen to and review one of your sermons. I’m humbled by this thought, but open to it. One hope I have for these Thursday slots is that they will include reviews of ‘lesser known’ preachers and not only the ‘big names.’ So, if you are an expository preacher and would like to submit one of your sermons (or suggest a preacher you know) just pass on the details.
