The True Nature of Preaching

I first discovered the sermons and writing of Barbara Brown Taylor about 9 years ago when I read The Preaching Life. Recently I been looking back over the book. Here are some great words from her:

“If the preaching they hear is effective, it will not hand them sacks of wisdom and advice to take home and consume during the week, but invite them into the field to harvest those fruits for themselves, until they become preachers in their own right. Preaching is not something an ordained minister does for fifteen minutes on Sundays, but what the whole congregation does all week long; it is a way of approaching the world, and of gleaning God’s presence.”
