A helpful article. Thanks.
I may be a little late in expressing my opinion but I believe that citing my sources lends credibility to me as a researcher and teacher. It tells my congregation that I am a seeker just like they are; that I struggle and study to find answers just like they do; and ,most importantly, that Ibenefit from the wisdom and insight of godly people to find those answers and that they can do the same.
I once put together what i thought was a very original sermon only to have my pastor widow tell me see heard it before not knowly i had use what i read in research will be more mindful going forward. When you know better you do better i heard someone say this.
Excellent insights as well as thought provoking and convicting concepts for those of us called to the artform of Gospel preaching.
This is very helpful as all of us strive to communicate the gospel in ways that connect freshly with our listeners, so we're ever looking for an angle or story that is not predictable but relevant and timely. We truly wrestle with using a particularly poignant illustration, for example, and taking credit by not citing the source. And if we cite every effective phrase, thought or insight, we fear getting in the way of the message God is delivering in the moment by drawing attention to the sermon as an object or product that has been crafted by a preacher. Great article. This helps me understand the value of giving credit where credit is due. All to the glory of God.
