  • Analysis Of A Preacher Without A Pulpit

    Preacher Without a Pulpit Preachers are respected figures of the religious community. I had a chance to follow Pastor William Reed for a week and got to learn more about the man that I see on Sunday mornings. It’s hard to picture the man behind the preacher, but after a few days I realized that my preacher is a man of God but more man than expected. As time went by and the questions were asked I got an incite of his life with and without a pulpit. Many times, people get it in their mind that a pastor should be the same outside of the church as he is inside. I found that to be somewhat true at times but completely different at other times.

When it is a Sunday or a Wednesday the church is full of believers and children ready and willing to…

    Part A 1. Before studying pastoral preaching I thought that pastoral care and preaching were mutually exclusive. I believed that pastoral care was concerned about meeting the needs of the people by shepherding them. This entailed visitations, be it at homes or hospitals, funerals, weddings, and doing things that are expected from a pastor. I believed the preaching was for the edification of the saints. The preaching is a herald of God’s word. The preacher spent a majority of his time in…

  • The Ethical Behavior Of Sermons

    Sermons Every sermon was meant to focus on ethical behavior and how to have a christian life (“Journal of Church and State”, 2014). McMahon (n.d.) stated that, we like preachers that are entertaining, Puritans on the other hand didn’t. There preachers had to be able to read the Bible and explain the plain meaning, note and discuss key points, and be able to apply the text to real life situations.
