Great article! 3 years ago in Introduction to Preaching, I preached my 1st in class sermon on the assigned passage of Micah 6:6-8 from his perspective. topic: social justice. The situation with Mike Brown had just occurred. I stayed away from portraying the voice of a deceased victim and spoke as Micah from that setting. I referred to it as personification preaching style. I wanted audience to know their place in social justice and called fregardless of race and role. You're so right, you have to be prepared to tell the story with knowledge. It wasn't my best but my classmates appreciated the style. Out of 10 students preaching on the same topic over a 2 week period, I was the final sermon. I needed to capture and keep their attention. I was weak in preparation and outline. Not easy but fun. I intend to explore this more as part of illustrative preaching and to aid with my speech impediment. It calmed me and gave confidence but also pressure. Hoping it will appeal to disabled audiences
Please give me a list of 1st person narrative sermons. The only one I can find is "A Night in Persia" which was excellent!
