Make Your Move

5/7/2021
If there is one area where many preachers struggle it's making the move from exegesis to homiletics. We have this strange idea that moving from one to the other is an arcane art that's the special domain of heroes that are somehow more than human. Today I'm talking about making your move from exegesis to homiletics and how I formulate the homiletical point of the sermon. ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

4/9/2021
Before we launch in to the nuts and bolts of sermons, I want to correct some common misconceptions about what sermons are, or in this case, what sermons aren't. At the top of my list is the fact that sermons are not identical with preaching. They're certainly related, but they aren't the same thing. Join me as I explain why and as I talk a little about proper criticism of sermons and of preaching. ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
