It's time to announce PreachingToday.com's annual Top Ten Lists. This week we feature our Top Ten Sermons, Top Ten Preaching Skills Articles, and Top Ten Illustrations for 2013. In the Top Ten Sermons category, Rick McKinley's biblically-sound, pastorally-sensitive, culturally-aware sermon on homosexuality based on Romans 1 and 1 John 4:19 took first place. New contributor Aaron Damiani, a church planter from Chicago, wrote the top skills article titled "The 15 Preaching Best Practices." And our Editor's Choice top illustration for 2013 was a tough one, but we settled on "The Man Who Snuck into Auschwitz"—an amazing true story about sacrificial, incarnational love.
Thanks for being a part of our community of preachers for 2013. We really do love having the opportunity to serve and encourage you in your ministry.
For the week ahead, make sure you check out these new resources:
P.S. In mid-January we have an amazing treat coming your way—an original, previously unpublished sermon by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Watch for more details!
