What Makes a Sermon Difficult To Listen To
I am closing in on my forty-third birthday and have been a churchgoer all my life.

I’ve also preached a few sermons of my own over the past 10 or 15 years. Recently, and largely for …

What’s the Point? (Alternative Ways to Frame Your Sermon)
As a Baptist, I’m plenty accustomed to hearing three-point sermons. As a Baptist preacher, I’m plenty accustomed to preparing and delivering them. But as time goes on and I (hopefully) grow in my ability as a preacher, I find myself trying to avoid the use of the word “point” and to replace it with alternatives that may be more interesting and more effective.
