How To Shortern Your SermonsSeptember 1, 2009
I have just finished drafting my first sermon for my new congregation. Fretting somewhat, because I noticed by my word count was a little high, something brought to mind a quote I once read about sermon length:
“‘The true way to shorten sermons’ said H. W. Beecher, ‘ is to make them more interesting.'” (quoted in Stott, I believe in preaching, p 292)
Perhaps I should be less worried about conciseness, and more concerned about content.
