Well prepared...

A friend of mine belongs to a theologically conservative church. The minister preaches from the Lectionary and his sermons are scripturally-based, though they do contain lessons for daily living. Using this guide, he prepares sermons weeks and sometimes months in advance. If he's not able to be at church, a deacon reads his sermons. Now there is one man who thinks ahead.

  1. The early nineteenth-century Scottish Evangelical preacher Thomas Chalmers used to criticize the cool, detached urbanity of ministers within the party called the Moderates in the Church of Scotland. Of their ilk he would often remark, "Moonlight preaching ripens no harvest."
