  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach to convince the mind, move the emotions, and activate the will. (Ben Durr, Homiletics Teacher) Write your manuscript, but preach extemporaneously. If you must preach from a manuscript, write for the ear and not the eye. Most authors write for the eye -- Paul Harvey writes for the ear. (Edsel Trouten, Substitute Homiletics Teacher) People need fewer ought-to sermons and more how-to sermons. (Rick Warren, Pastor, Saddleback Community Church)

  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Nothing yet. Hopefully nothing will.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Soli Deo Gloria - Solely for the Glory of God!
