Interesting view. Good advice. Wordy as more magazine articles tend to be in present times. My contribution: Research, understand. Pray,meditate, think of the sheep, think of the questions. Simplify the obstacles to understanding the answers. Add examples. Humour, real life experience never pick on but pick through delicate current sensitivities. Express in lucidity,with etymology. Above all, teach clearly with an objective to memorize the truth. The sheep must learn and remember your sermon for years!! Simplicity, Lucidity and Clarity
Although this article addresses a much needed subject, it fails to adhere to its own advice. It could benefit from the editing room. Too much redundancy caused me to skim sections of its content. Having said that, I believe that the example questions to ask in the pastoral approach (the second phase) of sermon development was worth the time of reading this article.
