Short sermons

"Lincoln and Short Sermons":
One of the lines attributed to Lincoln that was included in the movie gives insight into his thoughts about public speaking. If you’ve seen the movie, then you’ll remember Lincoln joking as he repeated the words of a preacher:
“I could write shorter sermons but when I get started I’m too lazy to stop.”
It can be a painfully true statement.

The sermons in which I have been lax on preparation are also the ones in which I tend to ramble more aimlessly. ....

  1. So very true. Ravi Zacharias tell about the time he was going to get to speak to the u.n., but was only given 10 minutes (or was it 5?). He says he worked longer on that speech/sermon than he had on any other.
