Welcome to the 38th episode of the Productive Pastor. It’s a great, jam-packed time!
This week I am sharing part of my “Sermons That Have Reach” content. If you have using my sermon planning worksheet or have listened to the podcast for very long, you have heard me talk about a “Big Idea” or a similar concept. The Monday Moment takes this strategy and amplifies it.
1. The Art of the Sermon: It was a privilege to be part of this great new podcast and to be one of the guests on it’s launch episodes. Dan is developing some great content. Productive Pastor listener, Rev. Brian Johnson, shares a great video on using NOZBE. Check it out here.
2.Threshing Floor Episode 50. I host this podcast with two of my best friends. We are hitting our 50th episode next week-it will be featuring JD Walt, sower-in-chief of Seedbed.
3. Productive Pastor Insider–Evernote, Death and Text-Messaging.
Using Monday Moments for Better Preaching
Monday Moments help us develop many different parts of our sermons. They affect the visuals, how we plan our messages and how we preach. They give us a guiding center (alongside our guiding text for the day). They help us develop repetition and focus in how we preach. They give people a literal phrase to repeat as they contemplate the message.Using a Monday Moment is a key preparation AND presentation device. It will help you plan and communicate better. The moment will help the people in your pews better internalize the message and remember it throughout the week.
The Preparation Pyramid
Think of this as a pyramid, with 4 floors.
Basement: Larger Biblical Truth
1st Floor: How Does Scripture Emphasis This?
2nd Floor: What Is The Intended Response?
Attic: How Do I Best Articulate This IN Communication?
I hope this introduction to Monday Moments will help you gain clarity over your preparation and communication. It is such an amazing tool.
