Preaching is a strange business

Preaching is a strange business. The very word preach has come to mean something we wish someone else would not do to us ("Don't preach to me!" "All I ever get from him is a sermon!") The idea of standing up and just talking for twenty minutes or more seems hopelessly outdated in a world fascinated by the dance of electronic images that flicker on a screen.

Are you sure you want to remove Unleashing the Word from your list? There's no description for this book yet.

Unleashing the Word: Preaching with Relevance, Purpose, & Passion. Abingdon Press, 2003. Long, Thomas G. The Witness of Preaching, 2nd Ed. Westminster John Knox Press, 2005. McMickle, Marvin A. Living Water for Thirsty Souls: Unleashing the Power of Exegetical Preaching.

Imagine announcing a new series of sermons and seeing worship attendance increase by 1,000 people on the first Sunday of the new series. Or consider a pastor developing sermon plans two to three years out. What kind of pastor sits in a bar with a notepad just looking for ideas for sermons? Or has as his aim to preach the best prepared, best researched sermons his congregation has ever heard? All of these and more explain part of the reason the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection has grown from four people to over 10,000 in just thirteen years.
