Cameron, over at Summa Aesthetica posts his second entry on dialogue in preaching/teaching. Great stuff. He has some pretty funny stuff about the fill in the blank sermon as well. I agree Cameron. I have never liked the bulletin, where the outline is posted on back, and the only goal of the congregation, is to wait with baited breath for the correct word to pop up, so we can then complete our outline. Then we can go home…or we can actually listen to the Word of God. Waiting for magic words to put into an outline is a terrible way to listen to proclamation. But that’s just my opinion. I’ve done some pretty bad sermon stuff on my own.
This is an important conversation I believe that Cameron is working on. I would like to see any feedback on his site, mine, or any others, about this issue. If you are a pastor, what do you think about all of this? If you are a theology student, what do you think about all of this? If you are a member of a church, what do you think about all of this? Whoever you are, what do you think about this?
