The View from the Pulpit

Colin Adams gives some encouraging and not so encouraging observations we preachers see week in and week out. I thought these were worth passing along:

Discouraging sights from the pulpit:

* yawning and even sleeping
* talking through the sermon
* closed bibles
* folded arms
* phones being checked
* people walking out (rejecting the message)
* people taken ill

Encouraging sights from the pulpit:

* bibles being examined
* note taking
* leaning forward with interest
* people walking out (under conviction!)
* tears
* joy at the truth preached
