“5 minutes into the sermon, I knew I was in trouble. People weren’t with me. At the 10-minute mark, people were falling asleep. One man near the front began to snore. And worse, he didn’t disturb anyone. No one was listening.” (Paraphrase from Biblical Preaching by Haddon Robinson.)
Most preachers have these kinds of experiences where the congregation is not connecting with them. What would it take to become a more effective communicator of God’s Word?
