i’m presently reading doug pagitt’s “preaching re-imagined and i’m really enjoying it thus far. because of it i decided to focus on a more interactive approach to the preaching i was scheduled to do at zoar baptist church’s college retreat. i use such an approach all the time with my students but i’ve never tried it with strangers. i think it went okay but i really won’t know until i think about it for a few days and maybe hear from a few people i know who were at the retreat.
the thing that i have enjoyed the most from pagitt’s book has been his focus on an interactive approach to preparing the message. i’ve tried this a few times and i always enjoy it. the biggest problem for me has been trying to find the time since our church has been without a senior pastor.
