This is an excellent article by a gifted practitioner. Like Ken, I too suffered from hyper anxiety related to preaching when I was preparing sermons the week I needed to preach them. However, having served on staff with Ken for the past four years (I am now once again serving in a lead pastor role in Seattle) I was amazed by his sermon prep rhythms. Largely, due to his influence, I am now following a similar rhythm. For example, I have my sermons for the next two weeks complete and am this week working on my first sermon for the Advent series. I have also instituted a "Feed Forward" here at our church, again something I learned from Ken, where I run through my sermon with a few staff members and hand-picked people from our congregation representing a broad demographic and am finding it immensely helpful. Every week I make edits based on their feed forward! I can affirm that my preaching experience has changed for the better and I am enjoying preaching as never before!

Anyone so articulate in an article can surely preach with power and clarity. Excellent.
