In fifth place, with five comments – There were several posts with no pattern to tie them together. One on a big theme on the blog this year; preaching the text, not just preaching from a text. The rest had more to do with the preacher outside of the pulpit, the space the preacher needs to work in, what new preachers need, and something on the pressing on of the preacher because I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels wiped out after ministering at times.
In fourth place, with six comments – Most of these posts related to sermon preparation. How long should a preaching text be? Then a pair of posts pointing to the dangers of fanciful interpretation (part 2) – a common problem it seems! And in this technological age, can facebook be used in preparation? Before preaching the preacher has to decide whether or not to project the text, and then after preaching, where should the preacher stand?
In third place, with seven comments – Just two posts hit seven comments . . . both reflecting particular passions of mine. One focusing on the need for good preaching, the other concerned with helping people trust their Bibles!
In second place, with eight comments – This was a post I suspected would get some interaction as I wrote it. Provocatively titled Preach more than Truth!
In first place, with twelve comments – Surprisingly this was a post about preaching and note-takers, although if I think about it, I think it tweaked the tail of a few self-confessed note-takers!
I won’t mention the thirteen posts with four comments, but I should mention that these numbers could be wrong if people go back and add comments!
Couple more points of review:
First Audio linked to in 2010 – This was an interview with Mike Reeves on Table Talk, all about preaching.
And finally, for what it’s worth and to finish the review . . .
Thanks for visiting the site in 2010, and Happy New Year!
