leave a comment »

MacKenzie told me that as a young man he met the theologian John Murray. And he mentioned to Murray that he was about to preach his first sermon. Murray asked MacKenzie if he knew the three P’s that distinguish a lecture from a sermon. MacKenzie couldn’t think of them. So Murray told him.

A sermon must be Personal.

It must be Passionate.

And it must involve a Plea.

It reminded me of this conversation about how to enliven lecturing here.
