Rubbish sermon vicar!

Fri, 04/03/2011 - 14:34 -- James Oakley

I'm greatly heartened to read Richard Perkins' recent post: 5 ways to profit from a rubbish sermon.

(Mercifully,) a sermon can fall far, far short of what it should be, and people can still profit from it. That doesn't mean it's OK not to try, but for me just to settle for preaching badly. But isn't it good to know that preaching badly also doesn't mean it's OK for the hearer to have to settle for hearing nothing? In patnership, as the preacher unfolds the text as well as he can, the congregation can seek to hear the voice of God as clearly as they can. And then they will.

Go on, read it! He has some excellent suggestions.
