I am preaching this Sunday in BIG church for our pastor who will be traveling on a mission trip.
I am preparing a NARRATIVE sermon which is not my normal approach.
Typically, a NARRATIVE sermon is written from a first person point of view. But in our Christmas Sermon Series, we are having monologues before the sermons, so it would be repetitive to do a first person account. So I am going to borrow from the reflective and poetic heart of a NARRATIVE sermon without doing the first person viewpoint.
The best sermon I have ever heard preached was a NARRATIVE sermon and that is what helped me fall in love with the format. E.K. Bailey did a narrative on Hosea that truly changed my life and opened my eyes to a whole new way of communication.
I will post a video and manuscript of the sermon soon so you can see how it goes…
