how to stop sermons from being boring

Mark Barnes writes an excellent piece, How Can You Stop Sermons Being Boring?

The article not only focuses on preparing the sermon, but also how to listen to and respond to the sermon.

On Preparation
  • prepare prayerfully
  • prepare thoroughly
  • prepare expectantly
On Listening
  • listen worshipfully
  • listen attentively
  • listen critically
  • listen submissively
On Responding
  • respond thoughtfully
  • respond fully
In summary, "how do we stop sermons being boring? With a soul that is prepared, a mind that is alert, a Bible that is open, a heart that is receptive, and a life that is ready to spring into action."
