Whilst in Russia I read a short book that I found compelling.
For some time now I have been frustrated by my plateauing preaching skills; I don't feel I am improving. I am not talking about my desire to preach from bible passages rather that I need to hone my skills in communicating.
The book by Andy Stanley has given me a new framework in crafting a message that the Spirit can use to bring life change.
So this week I have followed a new methodology in my sermon prep, the fruit of which you should experience this Sunday when I continue our series back2basics:Jesus.
Its both good and scary to try new things, the worst that can happen is I look stupid & bore you ... at best, the Spirit can use it to bring life change.
