Listen to your own podcast – the pain will be worth it

10 steps to better preaching offers some helpful stuff over at Sydney Anglicans, worth a full read:

  1. Prepare more.
  2. Leave out the boring bits. “they are the fault of the preacher not the bible.”
  3. Don’t wait till Sunday to try out you sermon.
  4. Ditch notes
  5. Speak to the people who aren’t there yet.
  6. Have an argument – Arguments are always more interesting and forces people to think about where they stand.
  7. Speak to the people who are there – Preaching the same passage to different congregations demands a different talk.
  8. Avoid trite application.
  9. Talk about Jesus every week.
  10. Listen to your own podcast – the pain will be worth it.
